The band was established in 2011 as a result of searching for own sound: modern, related to European jazz traditions, but mostly originating from imagination and music sensibility of its members. HoTS`s music consists of original compositions of Mikołaj Poncyliusz, the band`s leader.
HoTS became laureates of Young Jazz Scene competition during Jazz Jantar Festival in Gdańsk in 2015.
"There is no doubt that HoTS emerges as a fresh voice on the local melodic mainstream scene, which happens relatively rarely. This is definitely a formidable debut and HoTS will slowly gain a respected position on the European Jazz scene once they hit the clubs and festivals circuit and continue to release albums of such quality as this one."
