During his career Duško Gojković built his own style recognizable for the preciseness, brilliance of his technique and warm sound in playing as well as melodic tunes in composing.His colourful life is like a mirror of a half a century of jazz history. He caused stylistic developments;Gojković set technical standards, played with all the greats of the genre and finally became one of them.
Since 1955 he has been a formative influence not only on the German jazz scene, performing and recording with such as Dizzy Gillespie, Gerry Mulligan, Stan Getz, Sonny Rollins, Lee Konitz, Chet Baker, Woody Herman, Johnny Griffin, Mal Waldron, Phil Woods, Tommy Flanagan, Kenny Clarke, Kenny Barron and many more and is highly admired in the USA and Japan.
He is best known for his unmistakably melodic phrasing and his high-class ballad renditions on the trumpet, muted trumpet, and flugelhorn.

This is a rare German session from the mid-1960s that will be a real treat to fans of trumpeter Duško Gojković, saxophonist Nathan Davis, pianist Mal Waldron, the MPS sound, and groovy European ethnic jazz experiments.
Gojković has been inspired by Serbian/ Bosnian/ Macedonian/ the Balkans’ music for decades: he not only initiated the Balkans jazz movement with Swinging Macedonia, but has made good use of the Balkans melodies and rhythms in most diverse jazz contexts. Gojković leads a swinging sextet that has Davis on flute, soprano and tenor saxophones, Waldron, and rhythm team of bassist Peter Trunk and drummer Cees See.
The record is an attempt to bring traditional Macedonian rhythms into a jazz perspective, but with players like these, it swings in a way any Macedonian album never could. Davis is especially great, and plays in a strident modal vein that is similar to his work on his classic MPS sides, and on the records he cut in the USA in the early 1970s.
Swinging Macedonia is a beautiful session that often gets overlooked because it blends it with the Enja catalogue, but it is really more of a record that belongs in an MPS reissue series, and is a great lost groover that is waiting to be rediscovered by the real jazz fans.
