Review by
Rich Van-Matre, Director of the University of Cincinnati Jazz Department:

"The trio's recording was delightful. I liked the disc by the Filip Wojciechowski Trio very much, who showed a superb technique, highly creative improvisation and unique adaptation of Chopin."

From a review of a CD:
» "Romantic meets jazz"

I most respect such arrangements which give the impression of the composer's own themes inspired by popular melodies. It is no easy task , however, to render that source of inspiration to the listener. Nonetheless, F.W. takes it in his stride. He begins his first composition with the original excerption of Bach's prelude only to follow it with his own theme whose introductory motive is clearly borrowed from Bach. The whole composition adopts the traditional Jazz form of 'rhythm changes' with Wojciechowski's truly excellent theme and splendid coda.

The rearrangement of the theme of Chopin ninth etude is also perfect. All of them sond like the original jazz themes and the form introduced by team is splendidly fitted for improvisation. Of course, the greatest contribution of this is the pianist who is the author of all elaborations, but one ought to underline the excellent understanding of the theme through the rest of musicians.

Orginally it seems to me that the idea of using Chopin's Nocturne as his own coda for the whole, when after less than two minutes of the orginal (piano solo) reaches the whole team and gentle wins only one chord. Chopin becomes only a pretext to the end of the concert.

From a concert at the
Blue Note in Poznan:

"...they felt splendid in a lyrical mainstream Chopin etude as well as a swinging Mazurka. And they uncovered so much jazz dynamism in Bach. All of this made the atmosphere of that evening unique, and the public long refused to part with the musicians..."
