Ballad Book - Childhood Memories is another edition of the work of Włodzimierz Nahorny - an icon and legend of Polish jazz, a master of lyric poetry, who finds its most beautiful embodiment in ballads.
Ballad Book on CD was released in 2018 by Confiteor Records. SJRecords in agreement and cooperation with Confiteor Records presents you a perfectly realized high-end vinyl version! We also encourage you to buy CDs and high quality MP3 320kbps in our store!
The Childhood Memories is a sentimental journey to Kwidzyn - the city where the Master spent his young years. It is a different album than the previous ones, recorded in a trio. Stylistically toned down. A creative response to the scream, noise and haste that surrounds us today. It is music full of breath, peace, reverie and reflection. There are eleven unpublished works on the album.
The works of Włodzimierz Nahorny are poetry and romanticism - an undefined and unpredictable language. The pianism in the jazz canon has a personal Slavic stamp. His biography covers almost the entire history of Polish jazz. A creative idiom is as broad as its range of artistic possibilities is endless. From the very beginning of his career, from his debut, he arouses widespread recognition. An outstanding, unique composer, one of the first Polish multi-instrumentalists. He is a man of unprecedented sensitivity and modesty, at the same time full of energy and innovative concepts. Critics call him the Chopin of Jazz.
