CD Review by The New York City Jazz Record

“… Jinjoo Yoo sounds wise beyond her experience when she sits down to play. …”

“… I’m Curious, her debut EP, shows her breadth as a straight-ahead stylist and though there are strong allusions to key elements and players of the mainstream tradition, she doesn’t exactly sound like anyone else. …”

“… the listener is instantly attracted to Yoo’s light but firm touch on the keys, like a Broadway dancer springing across the floor. (…) with light clustered accents and a fine solo built on carefully crafted figures. …”

“… her solo lines, mostly single notes, crisp and clean like a trumpet. …”

    – Tom Greenland, <The New York City Jazz Record>
