O’s Notes: Polish Saxophonist and composer Irek Wojtczak expresses himself through folk, fusion and free jazz. The groove on Folk Five is a modern, free jazz that incorporates Irek’s Eastern European roots. Joe Fonda (b), Michael Jefry Stevens (p), Herb Robertson (t) and Harvey Sorgen (d) join Wojtczak for this collaboration with the Fonda/Stevens Group. Things heat up around the middle of the set when the band bounces around on a central groove while the Sorgen wails! This is a different but noteworthy session.
