...I can't say that I've heard of any of the members of this fine Polish/Hungarian trio before this disc, but I was quite pleased to hear this disc(...) The trio does a swell job and knowing when to come in and turn solos into duos or trios. NY DownTown Gallery
...These guys are as free as it gets, but full of soul and free improv leanings, and the trio's musicianship is just outstanding(...)All three of them are a real pleasure to hear, with an unbelievable scope of technique, yet using this always in function of the musical project at hand, coherent and focused.
