"Guitarist Maciek Pysz’s “Insight” is a gorgeous revelation of an album. Supported by the always inventive playing of noted drummer Asaf Sirkis and bassist Yuri Goloubev, Pysz’s acoustic lines may be perfect, pure and smoothly played, but their intent is too powerful to be anything close to being smooth jazz. Thank God. There is guitar wizardry on display here, and drum and bass wizardry too, but it is all in service to Pysz’s enthralling compositions"
