According to Downbeat Magazine he is one of the 25 musicians with a potential to shape the jazz music in the future.
Kuba Więcek aspires to become the number one youngest generation of the Polish jazz scene. His creativity and activity on the jazz music in the country and abroad (including Europe, USA, South America, Japan) are dizzy. Recordings (counting with this year a total of 20 CDs!) it seems that the young saxophonist is an example of a completely new way (than we have been used to so far) practiced artistic profession. Tomasz Szachowski Jazzforum
Więcek looks like someone with the potential to bury the divisions between the Polish jazz and mainstream environment.
