Jazz, Hard Bop | MP3 320 kbps CBR | 43 min | 106 MB
Label: RCA | Rel:1975
This is one of the greatest albums ever from Duško Gojković, a set that follows strongly in his Swinging Macedonia session mood from a decade before, and which, like that one, mixes up jazz with a range of Eastern European influences. Slavic Mood is recorded in October 1974 in Rome for the Vista label, a division of RCA specializing in Italian jazz. The tracks are all originals by Gojković, played by a quintet that is heavy on modal rhythms and warmly rolling grooves, a style that would be right at home on the MPS label, but which has gotten very little exposure over the years, thanks to the rarity of this Italian-only release.
