Knife In The Water ( Komeda, Krzysztof ) – “Knife In The Water” – [Cherry Red Records]
Music by Polish jazz pianist Krzystof Komeda from the soundtrack to Roman Polanski’s first feature length film KNIFE IN THE WATER (1962) and his 1960 short feature INNOCENT SORCERERSS, ending with some fine tracks of Komeda’s own compositions and some standards. After Stalin died in 1953, jazz was no longer illegal in Poland but Polanski’s film was disapproved by the regime when it came out. The tunes are very hip and cool and expertly played – a snapshot of jazz in Poland at this time and its excellence for a soundtrack. Komeda also did the soundtrack for Polanski’s film ROSEMARY’S BABY and other films.
