“Kuba Więcek Trio “Another Raindrop” is the newest addition to the revered series “Polish Jazz”. It is a debut release by the sensational 22-year old alto saxophonist with his trio including his favorite partners: Michał Barański on bass and Łukasz Żyta on drums.

THUNDERCAT "Drunk" (Brainfeeder)

“Composer and bassist Thundercat(born Stephen Bruner) teams up with Flying Lotus with a strong timeless album, (23 tracks) that combines jazzfusion, electronica, soul, r&b and rock. Again as his previous albums the structures are loose and frenetic but with a clear direction and will attract all sort of listeners, the music gives substance with a kind injecting mindfulness that whets the appetite​.”

Cim Meyer, Jazz Special(Denmark):
WILL VINSON ”Perfectly Out Of Place” (5Passion)
