From Album Liner Notes

'While America waits for the next big thing in jazz, they should turn to the east, to Poland, a country that has been making consistently great music for 40 plus years. It is criminal that American jazz fans are so completely unaware of this music. If you are expecting some sort of abrasive free blowing or watered down post bop, you are in for a big surprise. This music encompasses every genre of jazz, even genres that don't exist. Regardless of the style, this music is never, never pretentious and has more soul, whether it's Slavic soul or whatever, than what is passing for jazz in the States. The Polish version of jazz is as pure as music can be. It is not blending different types of music, i.e., jazz, ethnic folk, classical to create some kind of hybrid; it is a totally seamless combination of sounds based on the love of creative music and the joy that the music bestows on the listeners. In a nation with such a turbulent recent past, it is hard to imagine that these extraordinary musicians devoted themselves to this music for any reason other than love of jazz. I doubt they could make even a meager living from this music, which is even more amazing since they put so much heart and soul into this art form, humor, beauty, power, introspection, but I guess, mostly beauty; this is the most beautiful music in the world....this is pure jazz...and America doesn't know what it is missing. Polish jazz could make 'jazz' popular music again in America, if only Americans had the chance to hear it.' (Michael Keefe)
