“English musician Janek Gwizdala has positioned himself as one of the top electric bassists in New York” All About Jazz

“His painstakingly prepared floor array of pedals allows his bass to fly free, taking on multiple roles and visiting other dimensions” Bass Magazine

“Janek Gwizdala is known for his incredible improvisations, both on and off the stage - Watching the joy and intensity of this music’s creation is worth the price of admission” No Treble

“There is no limit to how epic this project could become between now and the recording sessions. Conceptually I’m writing far more music this time around, and plan to orchestrate elements of the album with two of my big compositional loves: choir and strings” Janek Gwizdala
