Anna Filipieva, Jazz.Ru (Russia):

Victoria Kaunova – Ilya Morozov featuring Alex Sipiagin «The First!» (Butman Music)

Anna Filipieva’s notes: «This album, recorded by singer Victoria Kaunova and alto sax player Ilya Morozov, is an outstanding illustration of the idea that, if you want your straigh-ahead jazz to really and consistently boil, it is important to pour in fresh forces regularly… and not to conserve it, by all means!»

Paweł Brodowski, Jazz Forum (Poland):

Andrzej Trzaskowski Quintet «Polish Jazz vol. 4 (1965)» (Polskie Nagrania/Warner Music Poland)

Paweł Brodowski’s notes: «Remastered and rereleased now on CD and vinyl “The Andrzej Trzaskowski Quintet” is considered one of the milestones of  Polish Jazz. Composer, arranger, pianist and bandleader was in his time a figure of equal importance as Krzysztof Komeda. This album, recorded one year before Komeda’s “Astigmatic” and featuring young trumpeter Tomasz Stanko, is an example of his visionary conception that expanded the frontiers of European jazz ».
