My brother Richie Beirach knew Zbiggy personally, which makes his comments all the more touching.

All I can add from the musical standpoint is that the solo violin record Zbiggy made is one of the monumental works of our time. I make it mandatory that anyone professing to play "jazz" violin study that recording. Zbiggy went past the instrument into the world of universal music, spiritual and deep, with John Coltrane as his guide. This recording in particular will ensure that Seifert's music will be with us for ever.
