All the December shopping and Xmas Prep are in motion - everyone is rushing, running, shouting, buying etc. This year Santa gave me something that I could experience with my wife - that is the very intimate concert of VooVoo - a Polish Jazz Band that creates something one of a kind. VooVoo the last their release is 7 - which describes 7 days of a week. The beautiful sound of improvised jazz filled my heart and soul - it was mesmerising.
“VooVoo was formed back in 1986 by the leading Polish rock and jazz musicians:
