A collection of all the recordings of the Dżamble group will be released. “The last such release”

Jamble is a jazz-rock group that debuted in 1966 in Krakow and existed until 1981. At the very beginning, he was the vocalist of the group associated with Piwnica pod Baranami was Jan Kaleta. The artists performed their own versions of jazz standards, but also original songs written by the singer.

The group went through several major personnel changes, and their most popular lineup was in 1969 Benedykt Radecki, Jerzy Horwath, Marian Pawlik and a vocalist Andrzej Zaucha. This lineup lasted only three years. It was with him that the band released the cult album “Calling for the sun above the world” (1971).

For years, the group did not publish an anthology of songs from this period. Now this will change thanks to the publishing house managed by Kameleon Records. “W night and day (archive recordings from 1969-1972)” will be released soon – an album with all the group’s achievements during Zaucha’s time.

“We manage to present such an album every few years and who knows, maybe this is the last release of this type in the history of Kameleon Records,” we read in the publisher’s message.

“We fought for the possibility of releasing it for a very long time, but we finally succeeded. The triple CD contains the complete recordings of the legendary Dżambla from 1969-1972. The album contains all radio, television and concert recordings recorded during this period. Only 9 songs that were included in the longplay ‘Crying for the sun over the world’ (all of them are included in the set, but in radio versions)” – we read in the description of the publication.

The three discs will include, among others: recordings sought by collectors for years for the programs “Ekran z Bratkiem” or “Szabla i rapier”, covers of hits “The Shadow of Your Smile” Whether “Feelin’ Alright”as well as recordings of complete performances of Dżambla z Opole ’69 and Jazz nad Odrą 1971.

The album also includes digitally remastered recordings from the performance of the reactivated Dżambla in 1990 on TVP. The material for remastering was taken from the original master tapes. The CD is in a fold-out, quadruple digi-pack, and an additional 20-page illustrated booklet is included.

The attached material also includes an essay on the history of the band, which was based on an interview with Marian Pawlik – bassist and the only living member of Dżambla.
