It's hard to believe it's a debut. Such mature interpretations and freedom of performance is impossible to find in todays Polish jazz market. Krystyna Durys surprised us with this album. She managed to capture this unique climate and the mood of the swing era. She sings standards with the respect of traditional interpretations but shares quite modern emotions with listeners. In the case of Krystyna Durys it's a creative inspiration which gives these songs a new face. There is also a great contribution of accompanying instrumentalists. It turns out that classical jazz is still alive, colorful and delightful. Such unique music can not remain unnoticed.- Michał Padkowski (music critic, reviewer, host of Pro-Jazz show in Pro-Radio).

Krystyna Durys knows how to make a real tribute. Aware of the risks issued in this unique convention she coped with it perfectly. Distinctive and intriguing voice. There are no two tracks in which it would sound the same. Thoughtful but not contrived interpretations perfectly capture the essence of each of the standards. The band - colorful like Krystyna - is bursting with creativity. I encourage anyone who appreciates original vocal, a fresh look at familiar songs and the unique atmosphere of timeless standards to become the owner of "Tribute To Ladies Of Jazz". -Marta Szostak (Graduate of Cultural Studies and a student of Musicology in UAM in Poznań).
