    "Jazz In Polish Cinema": December 29th - January 4th

    Jazz music was suppressed in Poland following the 1939 Nazi occupation. It was then linked with bourgeois decadence as much as Coca Cola, and remained underground until after Joseph Stalin's death. Broadcast on radio, performed in venues and taught in schools, movie-makers in Poland - among them, film student Roman Polanski (pictured) - quickly realised jazz could add a fresh twist to their projects. "Jazz In Polish Cinema" is a new, 4-CD set of re-mastered music from the late 1950s and 1960s. Each night this week, we'll hear part of a soundtrack (i.e. 7 in total) composed, for the most part, by one of two prominent Polish bandleaders from that era: Andrzej Trzaskowski or, especially, Krzysztof Komeda. Join Eamonn from 10pm...
