Piotr Budniak Essential Group

Heart, Mind & Spirit (Piotr Budniak)

”Heart, Mind & Spirit” is the new album of the Polish-Czech band called Piotr Budniak Essential Group. The title loosely refers to the concept of a human being as the sum of the spirit, soul and body professed in early Christianity and derived from Hebrew philosophy. The assumption of the team is an attempt to capture the essence of human integrity with the whole palette of his feelings, thoughts, beliefs, experiences and struggles.

Piotr Budniak Essential Group was formed in 2014 and has released 4 albums – all recognized very well by jazz listeners and critics.
