Awards

- FRYDERYK 2009 nomination (Polish version of the GRAMMY award) - 1st Award on the International Jazz Guitar Competition "Guitar City 2002" in Warsaw, Poland

“The youthful energy which emanates from every note on the CD perfectly corresponds with the surprising musical maturity of the leader, both on a compositional level and in its narrative drama and its individual phrases.” - Konrad Zywiecki, Jazz Forum

“It's amazing that this young artist already has so much to say... when you hear him it takes your breath away.” - Rzeczpospolita
