At the end of the year, they won the Great Prize (The Johnny Răducanu Trophy) at the Johnny Răducanu Festival in Brăila. The Trio recorded two official albums, Humanized in 2013 and A Pasha's Abstinence in 2014, both released by Fiver House Records. The latest won the Best Jazz Album prize at the first edition of the Sunete Magazine Awards 2014. The release concert for A Pasha's Abstinence also represented a national first-time event as Romania's only 'silent concert'.
On November 10, the trio released the DVD 'Live on the Eiffel Bridge', filmed during the same release concert, the first one silently amplified (as in 'silent disco'), with the support of the Plai Festival.
2014 ended with a tour in Berlin, Prague, Debrecen and also Romania.
