It looks like it was made in 1971 but Joy!Guru from the wonderfully named Polish label Unzipped Fly is in fact very much a product of now.
Recorded at Warsaw’s iconic Studio S4, it’s a highly original work by an equally commendable trio: legendary Indian slide guitarist, Debashish Bhattachary, and major names from Warsaw’s alternative jazz scene – drummer Hubert Zemler, and double-bassist Wojtek Traczyk
The reviews are ecoming in and so a big thanks to Dutch magazine Heaven for this one.
