The album was awarded Fryderyk 2013 for best jazz debut!
The main assumption of connecting a chamber orkiestra with jazz rhythm section and three brass instruments, was to create a compact form, both expressively and sonically. I wanted to create a form, which unites regular, steady structure of an orchestra with improvisation of a jazz band. (...) I'm trying to make my music, as far as it is possible, as an autonomous composition, which expresses what I correlate with in the perception of reality, art and its place in my life.
/ Piotr Damasiewicz
