this was seeded recently enough on dime by ‘davidraphael’, in video format, which i’ve demuxed. the sound quality is very good. it was seeded as “requiem for john coltrane” (a.k.a. “nighttime daytime requiem”) but on www.komeda.art.pl it’s just “nighttime daytime requiem”.  either way, allaboutjazz.com says that it “was written as a response to the news of the death of saxophonist john coltrane”.  it’s a great tribute to coltrane, and i would be interested to know what was said about him in the short interview in the middle of the performance.

  2. Thank you, Pete. What a sweet glimpse into the past. I’m very fond of Komeda’s music. All the more with Tomasz Stanko and this excellent rythm section.

    • thanks for the comment, ernst. i’m not very familiar with komeda’s music (to be precise: not at all until hearing this), but yes, a sweet glimpse indeed.

  3. BIG THX!…
