Michał Milczarek Trio's second album is a studio experiment with a blend of ambient, minimal music, modern- and free-jazz. The trio has recorded a fully improvised set during a two-day session in Quality Studio, Warsaw. Produced, mixed and mastered by Envee and Michał Milczarek, the album is innovatory both in terms of arrangements and sound. "Ambient Works" is above any musical templates and boundaries and it provokes the listener to take a different look on jazz and improvised music.

"Squirrels and Butterflies", the debut album of MM3, was released in Autumn of 2014. The band has been working on the CD for a year. The band's music refers heavily to jazz, which is the common link between the subsequent songs, though the compositions reflect the musicians' most recent inspirations as well. The album is full of hip-hop, rock, contemporary fusion and electronic music influences, which present jazz music with a fresh sound and unique approach. It was not only possible thanks to the arranging ideas of the musicians - the sound qualities were enhanced by the album's producer, Envee, who is known as one of the best and most respected producers and DJs in Poland. The "Squirrels and Butterflies" LP was recorded in Quality Studio in Warsaw and released by Akademia Rocka with the support of the Institute of Music and Dance "Jazz Phonographic Debut" program.
