|Rare Gems From Bulgarian Vaults
Vesselin Nikolov "Hallelujah"
Simeon Shterev Quartet "Sunbeam"
The Cosmic Sounds label continues its rich exploration of the untapped Eastern European jazz scene of the 60s and 70s -- finally set free in these post-Iron Curtain years, showing a wealth of wonderful music that's finally getting out to our western ears! This beautiful set focuses on Bulgarian recordings of the late 60s and early 70s -- a nd like other volumes in the series, it's got a groove oriented approach that runs through a number of styles -- from hardbop to soul jazz, funky fusion, and beyond!
