In both concerts, organized by the Polish Cultural Institute, Aga Zaryan, “the New Hope of the Polish jazz vocal scene” (Jazz Forum), who first took Poland by storm as Agnieszka Skrzypek, is promoting her new CD, Picking Up the Pieces, with back-up by New York jazz artists Bryn Roberts on piano, Alexis Cuadrado on double bass, and Mark Ferber on drums.

"A singer out of Poland who has apparently been knocking them out in Europe." – L.A. Weekly, February 2006

“She is credible, suggestive, and gifted with the ability to create an atmosphere so intimate that we feel as if she were singing just for us. “Picking Up The Pieces” is an album of captivating warmth.” – Marek Dusza, Rzeczpospolita, November 2006

“An intimate tale of a woman's emotions, set to the rhythms of swing and bossa nova. Among the 11 tracks on the CD are compositions by Aga Zaryan, several jazz classics, and an outstanding interpretation of Leonard Cohen's timeless “Suzanne”. Another world-class album from Poland! ” – Twój Styl 2006

“Her singing in English is by far the best of that of any of our female vocalists.” – Przekroj, November 2006
