Guru (Soliton. 2012) 

"All that happened here was like touching the primeval energy out of which everything has originated; touching the mystery of the thought exchange and the meeting of two personalities. Like a little drop of water makes the ocean, a true artist’s biggest happiness is to keep company with artists that are greater than himself. 

I remember how some years ago I was invited to cooperate with David’s group. I felt happy and honoured. Feeling a sense of responsibility I got immersed in my work. Everything is in motion and nothing lasts forever- as the philosopher would say. I have become a different man. I absorbed and admired his playing. And so it is today. I learned how to perceive music to see its value, beauty, wisdom and freedom. I consolidated all that my intuition and residual knowledge used to tell me then. David is one of the most important musicians I have ever met. 

Maciek Sikała is my musical father. Our co-operation dates back to 1998 and he was the first one to lend me a hand. We have recorded some wonderful albums and played many concerts together. His playing is always beautiful and infallible. He is a top class musician. Cezary Konrad is the drum virtuoso I love to play with. Versatile, sensitive and vigilant. Workig with him is a great pleasure and honour. Maciek Fortuna who plays the trumpet is a wonderful young generation trumpeter who enriched our music with the beautiful sound and interesting solos."
