Katarzyna Borek is a young classical Polish pianist working her way to the jazz orbit. Her newest solo album is unique, it has no precedence. She took the works of 20th centrury composers (including Manuel de Falla, Joaquin Rodrigo, John Cage, Arvo Paert, Craig Armstrong) enriching them with the sounds from space (registered by Voyager sent into space ba NASA in 1977).

Mike Flynn, Jazzwise (UK):
