Wojciech Waglewski is one of the most important musicians from the Polish underground scene. He founded Voo Voo in the mid Eighties and he's still leading them.
He's a prolific artist for sure: this is his twenty-fourth album with Voo Voo, not counting his various other projects (Osjan, Małe Wu Wu, Waglewski Fisz Emade) and his solo career.
Released in the fall of 2014, "Dobry wieczór" ("Good evening") is one of the best Polish albums of the new century, an art rock adventure through jazz, folk, and traditional music.
One song in particular, "Gdybym", was voted the best song of 2014 by the listeners of Radio Trójka. It easily became Voo Voo's signature song, and deservedly so: the first part is an atmospheric jazz ballad sung by Waglewski, the second one is an Azerbaijani traditional prayer wonderfully performed by guest singers Alim and Fargana Qasimov in their typical mugham style.
The album would be worth its price for this song alone, but the rest is brilliant too.
