Boomkat Product Review:
Cherry Red give new life to Krzysztof Komeda's sumptuously bright yet cool and nuanced jazz score for Roman Polanski's directorial debut 'Knife In The Water' (1961). Komeda (a stage name adopted because the Communist government didn't do jazz) was hailed as one of European Jazz music's brightest, pioneering talents in his day and produced some 70 film scores including this, and other Polanski classics 'Rosemary's Baby', 'The Fearless Vampire Killers', and 'Cul-de-sac', beside a stack of albums with his quintet. Now i'm no expert on jazz, far from it, but I can tell you that this album is dapper as hell, and if you don't believe me then listen to Jonny Trunk "..doesn't get much better really. Unless you have your own boat." It's a supercooled, swinging suite comprising five pieces from the titular flick, plus another 13 dug from 'Innocent Sorcerers' and assorted live performances between 1956 and 1961, all marked out by a sort of effervescent, understated modern jazz freshness. Check!
