”Sarnecki's original compositions merge the high-flown lyricism of Polish culture with an idiosyncratic, thoroughly disarming way of building long and winding musical phrases” - Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune

“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
