Peter Jones It's always tough picking a favourite track off an album this good. Twice and The Space In Between were close but Four Brothers brought the biggest smile today, so wins. Fusion with a solid jazz source. Favorite track: Four Brothers.

Patricio Zenklussen Years have passed since I heard something so intimate and nocturnal. Another success by Mr. Gwizdala. Favorite track: To Begin.

Philip Wain I really find it quite an emotionally affecting record. It gets you from the first. ‘To Begin’ has a gorgeous behind the beat neo-soul swing to it with Audun Waage’s laid back trumpet and Janek’s melodic soloing. ‘Bethany’ has a simple theme and a chord sequence, groove and development I just adored. Jojo Mayer drums wonderfully throughout. ‘Four Brothers’ is a burning way to end a record.

I think both of those artists are melodic, innovative, write great songs, and put on a kick ass live show. So there you have it, i hope you enjoy it, and I hope you encourage other people to check it out.
