Fiona's Comments

Who knew Pelt was such a budding meteorologist? Off topic 'Mercy, Mercy, Mercy' is a perfect platform for Pelt and Medyna solos.

About the Album

Joe Zawinul's composition in a fresh, contemporary groove and arrangement. It features five-time Downbeat & Jazz Journalists Association Rising Star Award winner trumpeter Jeremy Pelt. While WM Project is a brand-new constellation, the musical masterminds behind it, pianist Andrzej Winnicki and tenor saxophonist Krzysztof Medyna, go back a long way. In the late 90's, they have played together in the fusion group Electric Breakwater ("In the Bush" CD with Mark Egan on bass and Rodney Holmes on drums), and have furthered appreciation of Polish composer and pianist Krzysztof Komeda through their widely acclaimed Komeda Project. KP's "Requiem", featuring bassist Scott Colley, drummer Nasheet Waits and trumpeter Russ Johnson, made the list of Top New Albums in The Village Voice Critics Poll: 2009.
