Not only excellent musicians but also composers in their own right thet present a programme of original music as well songs by Ennio Morricone and Ralph Towner. An evening full of beautiful and touching melodies, intricate Latin rhythms played with passion and fire.
“There is some beautiful stuff here – a must for jazz guitar fans” **** Stephen Graham (Marlbank)
“The crisp balance of sound and space in this recording is flawless…it’s great to witness the development of Maciek Pysz’s own musical personality”
“Pysz is a quiet virtuoso who has developed into one of the most distinctive guitarists around” ****
“Te Intro is an improvised section from Maciek Pysz on guitar and demonstrates why, for many people, Maciek is a key player of our time. This captures both the delicate touch which Maciek has and also the emotive, crystal clear style of his playing”
“With ‘A Journey’ Maciek Pysz has produced an album deserving of the highest praise. Highly recommended”
Peter McLaren (Jazz in Europe)
“However impressive his technique may be, it is certainly not‘showy’ – everything is at the service of creative expression”
