05.09.10"Not a dull moment to be had." David Franklin - Cadence Magazine
"Interesting music from a group of players with varied musical backgrounds. Leader-altoist-composer Nick Kadajski has spent time with an Afrobeat group, a Funk/Jazz ensemble, and a Turkish-influenced band, among others. And though his improvisations consist of fine Post-Bop Jazz, his compositions reflect many, if not all, of those experiences.... Not a dull moment to be had."

Nick Kadajski's 5 Point Perspective - "Remembering Things to Come"
(Circavision Productions )
"This exciting combo virtually leaps out of the speakers on opening track - the jazz/rock fusion "Phantom Energy."... Fine work from this Brooklyn-based ensemble, whom I suspect we will be hearing more from in the future."
02.28.10"Phantom Energy" chosen as Finalist in International Songwriting Competition (ISC)
"Phantom Energy", one of my compositions from the album "Remembering Things to Come", has been chosen as a finalist in the International Songwriting Competition (ISC)! ISC finalists were chosen out of approximately 15,000 entrants. The International Songwriting Competition is an annual song contest whose mission is to provide the opportunity for both aspiring and established songwriters to have their songs heard in a professional, international arena.

02.07.10"..."Remembering Things to Come" reveals a unique jazz..." Knocks From the Underground by Ross Edwards
..."Remembering Things To Come" reveals a unique jazz with a sharp edge, and an interesting melee of guitars, alto, bass, and drums. They are skilled technicians, no doubt, and with enough maturity to mix their sounds wonderfully.
01.08.10"The ultra clean stereo separation of this recording impresses almost immediately but not before the visceral forward motion of the music itself, reminiscent of jazz-rock at its best." Glide Magazine.com by Doug Collette
Nick Kadajski's and 5 Point Perspective/Remembering Things To Come (Circauisian Prod)
The ultra clean stereo separation of this recording impresses almost immediately but not before the visceral forward motion of the music itself, reminiscent of jazz-rock at its best. These musicians' roots extend outside the fusion realm, however, largely due to the prominence of the leader's alto sax. Still, the presence of dual guitars hearkens to Miles' Davis later electric forays, without ever sounding truly derivative because those instruments are utilized as much for texture as straight melodic and rhythmic exploration.

"Energetic and cutting edge, moldy figs have to yield to those young whippersnappers here."
10.28.09' "Phantom Energy"... features a blazing sax, wailing and full of sonic passion..." The Valdosta Daily Times by:Dean Poling
' "Phantom Energy"... features a blazing sax, wailing and full of sonic passion, a fine groove with Kadajski’s alto sax being backed by fellow Perspectives Ben Cassorla, guitar; Sean Moran, guitar; Brad Maestas, bass; Brian Adler, drums."
10.28.09"...Kadajski has multiple speeds in his repertoire, and uses them all extremely well..." - IndieMusic.com by: Dan MacIntosh
"..."Phantom Energy", with its harsh electric guitar work and wild saxophone, will certainly energize your mind. "On The Corner" slows the energy down significantly, while "Gently" gears it down even more, to a crawl. Nick Kadajski has multiple speeds in his repertoire, and uses them all extremely well here, while appealing to both the heart and the brain."
