Hey Rim Jeon & Friends / Press

“Mona Lisa Puzzle...intense, intelligent statement...”

Bill Milkowski - JazzTimes

“The new CD (Hey Rim Jeon & friends) quickly tables any discussion that Jeon is in any way behind her peers. In fact, it reveals a player with a sure touch and a penchant for stepping beyond early mainstream influences.”

Bob Young - Boston Sunday Herald

“Hey Rim...a brilliant pianist...she has a good concept of what the music is all about, and the ability to perform it.”

Benny Golson - Legendary jazz artist

“Hey Rim is an exceptional talent. Her technical prowess and intriguing harmonic sensibility set her apart from many of her peers. I love playing her music because her piano style and composition style allow my voice to be heard as an integral part of the ensemble, opposed to just an accompanist. She plays with absolute presence, yet still provides enough space for the music to breath. Her songs blend elements evident of her classical training and her jazz improvisational skills. I think it is wonderfully combined. Hey Rim is a very exciting, emerging artist!”

Terri Lyne Carrington - Drummer

“Hey Rim Jeon's newest, Mona Lisa Puzzle, shows off her excellent skills as a composer. Can't go wrong with the star studded bandmates who bring her compositions to a high level.””

Ron Gill - Jazz Gallery, WGBH 89.7

“...her fabulous original compositions and inventive interpretation are always sure to entertain...”
