A meeting of minds and memories. Jan and Wojtek first met in Poland whilst touring and recording with Pinski Zoo. (See Live in Warsaw). Followed by a UK tour with PZ Wojtek continues his musical career in Poland, where Jan has joined him on several occasions for tours and research projects over there. A succesful UK touri in 2002 led to the release of ZONE K , live recordings in Nottingham Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Gainsborough. There is a sort of GHOST MUSIC meets PINSKI ZOO feel about the album, regular PZ drummer Steve Harris completes the trio. Open, and spacious , the music has those elements of freewheeling passionate playing and an intriguing folksy piano solo in the middle.
