The beginning did not give the slightest indication of anything extraordinary: in 1962 a young musician named Tomasz Stanko founded a jazz group called "Jazz Darlings" and wrote his first compositions. Now, this album lets us see how far he has gone, how much he has achieved.

His complex and mobile artistic personality oscillates between his capabilities as an instrumentalist and his natural inclination to compose. The choice is not easy and probably impossible to make at present, so the instrumentalist - composer is in constant inner conflict with himself. He says that intensive creative work inevitably decreases instrumental technical mastery, and jazz musicians are today expected to demonstrate top level of performance.

It should be noted here that the young (born in 1942 in Rzeszow) musician has for several years has been considered the best Polish trumpeter and, besides Andrzej Trzaskowski, is mentioned among the leading composers. Besides playing with his own group, which was described by Joachim Berendt as Europe's first free-jazz combo, Stanko has worked and recorded with many outstanding musicians, e.g. A. Trzaskowski, Z. Namyslowski, D. Cherry, A. Mangelsdorff, W. Nahorny. Still, as he is quick to admit, it is Krzysztof Komeda's music that has had the deepest impact on his art.
