"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

"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
