"Full of warm affection and bright imaginary, the music is a revelation of who Joonsam is and what the world looks like through his eyes and what it sounds like through his ears. It is a world of fragile beauty and tender moments to be expressed vividly and with passion." - Jazz Times

"With poise and grace, Joonsam and his ensemble create free-flowing music that will cause you to reflect on your own recent memories, painting pictures that will make your heart full." -Down Beat
