ForTune Records 2015
This CD was recorded in the Summer of 2014 in Warsaw, Poland. The Fonda/Stevens Group featuring Joe Fonda, Herb Robertson, Harvey Sorgen and myself on piano were invited to Poland to perform and record this music with the talented Polish saxophonist /composer Irek Wojtczak. Irek had arranged a number of Polish folk melodies for jazz quintet. This recording is very special for us. Each track features a blend of both modern jazz (free improv) style performance while at the same time paying tribute to these ancient and historical Polish folk melodies.
