Independently of other artistic work, he runs his own quartet as the leader. Although he is an admired musician, he does not record very often, but when it eventually happens, the results can be excellent. That was the case with Pathfinder, recorded by Nowicki/Święs/Frankiewicz TRIO and nominated for a significant Polish music award, Fryderyk, in 2012.
Both as a leader and a session musician he performed at some prestigious Polish and international festivals including London Jazz Festival, Baku Jazz Festival, Warsaw Summer Jazz Days, Jazz Jamboree, Sibiu Jazz Festival, Chopin and his Europe, , Bordeux Jazz Festival, 12 Points Festival and Jazzycolors.
