Piotr Figiel biography
Polish composer, arranger, vocalist and keyboardist Piotr FIGIEL (1940.04.13 - 2011.12.22) is probably best known for composing music for other artists, movies, TV, radio and theatrical plays. But in the 1960's he was an active musician himself, and toured Scandinavia with The Clivers. Later he would concentrate on studio work, as a collaborator with other artists in one capacity or another or for recording material for a wide variety of purposes.

Figiel also recorded and released a couple of solo albums: Piotr in 1971 (also known as Organ Hammondy) and Music in 1976. Of these two productions it's the former that will be of interest to fans of progressive rock, especially if you have a soft touch for jazzrock and fusion. The latter appears to be more of a purebred pop production, and from some descriptions apparently more of a compilation in spirit, but issued under Figiel's name.

Piotr Figiel Crossover Prog

Review by Evolver
Special Collaborator Crossover & JR/F/Canterbury Teams

3 stars Polish organist Piotr Figiel is, in my opinion, one of those artists that just barely made it into the Prog Archives. If he had released his albums later than the early seventies, I'm pretty sure he would not be listed here, but in the context of the times, I think he was progressive.

His songs are all structured around his Hammond organ solos, where he plays all around the melodies, like a lesser Keith Emerson. His songwriting, however, is unmemorable. The best of the tracks on this album are the psychedelic jams, where he performs admirably. Unfortunately, too many songs sound to me like the soundtrack from 1960's European films, with light, airy melodies, and ba ba da ba dah vocals.

I guess I'd rate this 2.5 stars. Rounded up.

Thanks to windhawk for the artist addition.
