Jazz in Polish cinema launch

Jazz in Polish Cinema Box set released today plus John Fordham’s Gua

Jazz on Film Records announces the official release on Monday 17th November of Jazz in Polish Cinema following a successful launch on Saturday at the London Jazz Festival that included an introduction by the box set producer Selwyn Harris and a brilliant short ‘live’ solo piano set by the leading young Polish pianist Marcin Masecki, his personal interpretations of a selection of soundtrack themes by Krzysztof Komeda on the box (from Le Depart, Innocent Sorcerers and Knife in the Water).

This segued perfectly into a rare big screening of Polanski’s Knife in the Water and ended with Q&A with Selwyn Harris hosted by the Sight & Sound film writer Michael Brooke.

The previous day saw a extremely positive 4-star review in the Guardian by John Fordham
