CD Review

My first CD review just came in from Minor 7th Music, check it out:
Johnna Jeong "Solo Me," 2014 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
