Review

Roman Polanski's stunning "Knife in the Water" (Noz w wodzie) is a perfect example of film-Jazz synergy. In this movie, making the most of the music of Krzysztof Komeda, Polanski was able to masterfully blend languages of improvisation, cinematography, and Jazz; camera and movie narration tempos; creating completely new, innovative and consistent film language. For many "Knife in the Water" remains one of Polanski's greatest masterpieces and one of the most the most successful exploitation of Jazz in motion pictures history. When commenting on "Knife in the Water" Manfred Eicher (ECM) observed that in his masterpiece, Polanski used Komeda's score to "emphasize music and sounds as an equal counterpart to images". --PolishJazz.com

By sheer force of his personality Komeda justified his need to control the emotional territory hitherto reserved for symphonies. He expanded the range of expression in jazz by adding a dramatized lyricism - it's force reaching the intensity of ecstatic and mysterious experience. The new jazz aesthetic demanded the new form. Komeda introduced a directional form of arch, developed from an exposition through culmination to a final resolution. --Adam Slawinski

The music of Komeda escapes simple classification and description. He never formally studied composition, harmony, arrangement nor orchestration. His unique sound has to a lesser extent to do with conventional Jazz style timing, but rather with Slavic lyricism, 19th century Polish romantic music tradition, and a variable treatment of time during the course of his compositions. He is widely credited as being one of the founding fathers of uniquely European style in Jazz composition. --Chazz4Jazz
