Polish jazz septet EABS released one of my favourite albums of 2017 Repetitions (Letters to Krzysztof Komeda). The record focused on the lesser-known works of the legendary Polish composer and also spawned a live and tape version of the project, which crowned the “Komeda triptych”.
Titled ‘Slavic Spirits’ the new albums features 100% original material and sees the band creating an explosive blend of jazz vibes and hip hop grooves.
The seven-track album, which arrives on Astigmatic Records, is said to be inspired by “deliberations of many musicians, but also historians, journalists, writers, and even psychotherapists.” Listen to their blistering new jam ‘Przywitanie Słońca’ below.
Late last year they released a two-track collaborative project with Tenderlonious who plays flute, and soprano saxophone on the forthcoming LP.
Pre-order a copy of Slavic Spirits here ahead of its 7th of June release, and check out the tracklisting below.
