The HoTS quintet
from the very beginning has been developing its own sound, drawing on the European tradition of modern jazz and searching for the new voice of jazz music in Poland. This band is the fruit of artistic friendship and common musical imagination of five musicians who come form different music backgrounds - jazz, classic, improv. This influences meet and intertwine in different ways in their music. 

The title of their first album: "Harmony of the Spheres” (V Records 2015) refers, just as its acronym in the name of the band, to the Pythagorean harmony of celestial bodies. Harmony is the key to describing this album which focuses on melody and sound.

Each song - full of changing rhythms, lyrical themes and unique harmony - tells stories of small, simple things – their birthplaces, juvenile fascination with some TV series, music inspirations and love. In the second album "Numbers” (Multiculti Project 2016) songs have a much more open form, there is more improvisation, compositions are more complex. It is a concept album with elaborate melodies and executive discipline developed over many years of common rehearsals and concerts.

Both albums consist of original compositions by the band leader - Mikołaj Poncyljusz. Their unique style has been noticed by music critics and is appreciated by international audience - they played already more than 100 concerts in Poland and abroad. 

他們的第一張專輯《Harmony of the Spheres》(V Records 2015),正如其樂隊名稱的縮寫,到天體的畢達哥拉斯和諧。和諧是描述這張專輯的關鍵,它專注於旋律和聲音。 每首歌曲都充滿了變化的節奏、抒情的主題和獨特的和聲,講述了一些小而簡單的事情的故事——他們的出生地、 少年時期迷戀一些電視劇、音樂的靈感和愛情。在第二張專輯《Numbers》(Multiculti Project 2016)中,歌曲的形式更加開放,即興創作更多,作品也更加複雜。曲目名稱為數字符號,歌曲之間有一些在錄音期間即興創作的插曲。這是一張概念專輯,經過多年的共同排練和音樂會,精心製作的旋律得到了發展。 兩張專輯皆包含樂團隊長 Mikołaj Poncyljusz 的原創作品。他們獨特的風格受到了評論家的好評以及國際觀眾的讚賞 - 他們已經在波蘭和國外舉辦了 100 多場音樂會。HoTS 五重奏的原創音樂充滿活力,富有表現力,充滿情感,能夠營造出偉大的戲劇性的氣氛和令人難忘舞台。
