"This debut release from guitarist Jeong is a pleasure, and will appeal to a wide variety of listeners. Jeong's electic musical taste is reflected in the variety of works that flow from traditional classical guitar into the borders of Latin, and of jazz. Pretty mix of music here that is both smart and entertaining." WSCL Public Radio
"In her debut CD, Johnna Jeong opens a window to her soul by giving us a glimpse at the music she holds most closely to her heart. "Solo Me" is a collection of Spanish/South-American compositions, as well as several works composed by Jeong, all of which gracefully bridge the gap between classical guitar, jazz, and popular styles. The album as a whole has an immediate and broad appeal, all the while exploring immense musical and emotive depth. All of the selections feature distinctive rhythms, bold compositional gestures, and haunting extended harmonies. Jeong displays an effortless command of the instrument as she navigates the complex interpretive language that this style of music demands, bringing to life the spirit of this powerful and unique genre. "Solo Me" is a perfect introduction to Jeong, showcasing not only her outstanding playing, but also the music she holds most dear." ©Timothy Smith-Minor 7th Music
