Wojtek Mazolewski Quintet - album review at Stereogum

Their version of “Theme de Yoyo,” probably the most aggressive, funkiest thing the Art Ensemble ever recorded, is great; the horns jump and shout, as the rhythm section repeatedly devolves from an airtight groove into brief interludes of free jazz chaos.

Wojtek reviewed at All About Jazz

Great tunes, infectious beats and rhythms, concise solos—around half the playing time is through-composed—striking ostinatos, lots of call and response and counterpoint in the arrangements, an atmosphere of passion and joie de vivre, and respect for tradition combined with a future-facing vibe.
