Adam Domagała’s review of the ”Moments” album
(for the Jazz Forum Magazine)

”A delightful album! The delicate and sophisticated smooth jazz meets here with the brisk of good old fusion. From a numerous great jazz albums recorded in Poland music proposed by Krzysia and her band is a very rare phenomenon. Nine instrumental tracks from the ”Moments” album are an unique presentation of an individual style where the delicate and sophisiticated smooth jazz (yes, this is possible despite I how people and musicians think about this genere) meets the brisk of good old fusion. Krzysia Górniak (”Moments” is her fifth fully original album) is a super skilled guitarist: her technique, articulation, phrasing and her brilliant sense of improvisation make her fingers flow a cascade of beautiful melodies. The only similar guitarist I can think about is Pat Metheny. This are lirical songs sung with six steel strings. What is worth mentioning is that Krzysia Górniak is an inceredibly sensitive author of this songs. Songs where no words are necessary. The guitar plays a role of a medium while the music’s source comes from the heart…”
