"Both suites are characterized by adventurous compositions, without Semey putting himself center stage. Just like Reinier Baas, Semey realized a total concept where inventiveness and surprising findings are kneaded into a compelling experience. An absolutely daring and remarkable debut by a humble yet thorough guitarist."

Erno Elsinga, Jazzenzo

"To be clear, this is no curiosity cabinet, or attempt at third stream, but a personal interpretation of the possibilities between playing written scores and improvisational supplements."

Georges Tonla Briquet, Jazz Halo

"Semey’s compositional drive propels the players into higher emotional expression – this is not academic, cerebral writing, but felt experience translated into sound."

Mark Werlin, All About Jazz
