  • Throw her heart
This is a rare German session from the mid-1960s that will be a real treat to fans of trumpeter Duško Gojković, saxophonist Nathan Davis, pianist Mal Waldron, the MPS sound, and groovy European ethnic jazz experiments. Gojković has been inspired by Serbian/ Bosnian/ Macedonian/ the Balkans’ music for decades: he not only initiated the Balkans jazz movement with Swinging Macedonia, but has made good use of the Balkans melodies and rhythms in most diverse jazz contexts. Gojković leads a swinging sextet that has Davis on flute, soprano and tenor saxophones, Waldron, and rhythm team of bassist Peter Trunk and drummer Cees See. The record is an attempt to bring traditional Macedonian rhythms into a jazz perspective, but with players like these, it swings in a way any Macedonian album never could. Davis is especially great, and plays in a strident modal vein that is similar to his work on his classic MPS sides, and on the records he cut in the USA in the early 1970s. Swinging Macedonia is a beautiful session that often gets overlooked because it blends it with the Enja catalogue, but it is really more of a record that belongs in an MPS reissue series, and is a great lost groover that is waiting to be rediscovered by the real jazz fans. Ten tracks in all, with titles that include “Macedonia,” “Old Fisherman’s Daughter,” “Jumbo Uganda,” “Bem Basha,” “Saga Se Karame,” and “The Nights Of Skopje,” this is a real masterpiece that harmoniously blends hard bop and traditional Slavic tunes. Thus Gojković’s style was born, and Balkan jazz had found its musical ambassador. More than just an oddity, the excellent Swinging Macedonia deserves to be known more widely. On the other hand, this is one of the rarest, most expensive jazz LPs in the collector’s market: the first edition still goes for about $ 1.000.
