”I am truly impressed. It is rare to come across music like this. Manyelements deserve particular attention and admiration. As a saxophonist, I especially value Andrzej´s wonderful playing technique. Next,there is the quality of the recording. The proportions, sound of instruments, quantity and quality of the reverb – all are outstanding. And the third, and probably the most important factor, (for me especially so) the repertoire. The compositions and arrangements, both of the jazz- and more classical- style, are absolutely the best possible”.
Zbigniew Namysłowski – jazz saxophonist and composer
„Andrzej Olejniczak surprised us all with his last album. Both his fans and all Polish jazzmen, as well as classical music audience. The music on Different Choice album is a real phenomenon which escapes easy categorisation. There is almost no improvisation, but there is a first class string quartet, four beautiful ladies, whose music for sure must not be described only as a pleasant background for Olejniczak’s saxophone playing. (…) Exactly as the title says, we deal with a unique category of music which requires from both parties, the musicians and the audience, a lot of focus and concentration. This is how we listen to classical music. In the case of Different Choice, the musicians have obtained the effect of openness going beyond the definition of classical chamber music. (“Hi-Fi Choice”)
“This is almost serious classical music, and it has found the best possible performer in Olejniczak. A performer who does not only play with a beautiful sound and a lot of precision, but also one who, in a very natural way, incorporates new sounds into his interpretation, and will improvise in places. To make it short, we could say that this music is beautiful, well-recorded, wonderfully performed, and very original. It really is artistically a completely “different choice”.
