Although some musicians say that the form of a classic jazz piano trio has already been used up and it is impossible to be surprising anymore in this category - they are, fortunately, mistaken. "Totem" is definitely one of the best debuts of 2016. Wonderful compositions stun with their melodic lightness, and at the same time captivating the listener with subtly served details. And technically, we have instrumentalists who can compete with the leaders of European jazz."
