Nahorny Trio is a band that has been playing with the same line-up continuously since 1990. It is the longest existing band in the history of Polish jazz. Freedom Book - Echoes Of Heyday is another edition of the work of Włodzimierz Nahorny - an icon and legend of Polish jazz, a master of lyricism, this time realized in cooperation with an outstanding trumpeter of the young generation - Piotr Schmidt. It is stylistically toned down music. A creative response to the scream, tumult and haste that surrounds us today. It is music full of breath, peace, reverie and reflection.
