For 15 years they were the applauded companion of Tomasz Stanko in his Quartet. As Tomasz Stanko says himself „…in the entire history of Polish jazz, we’ve never had a band like this one. I’m surprised by these musicians every day. They just keep getting better and better”.
Marcin Wasilewski was listed in 2015 and 2011 as ”piano rising star” in the DownBeat Annual Intl. Critics Poll.
