Czeslaw Niemen was a Polish rock singer who made a bunch of jazz fusion records with people like Jan Hammer in the late ’70s. I don’t know anything about that, but his late ’60s/early ’70s pre-fusion stuff is pretty good.

This gospely jam comes from an album of Russian songs he did for release in West Germany: piano, male chorus, acoustic guitar, incredible. Like a Polish Band or something?
