“You cannot miss the newest project of Jakub Paulski. It consists of all the best you can hear in jazz, located around mainstream genre. The guitarist developed his composition skills that shows us that he is not keen with boredom, and he doesn’t allow the audience to get bored. He does it multiple ways: by flexible and elegant tempo and timbre change that surf it’s way around mutual jazz-related genres. For sure he uses the talents of his fellow musician wisely.
No matter if the parts are stuffed with fearless and daring lines or rather of a minimal kind – Paulski does not forget about the melody. Once hidden beneath mathematical structures, it emerges in a beautiful style.”
