This is very good jazz record that is never boring, and demonstrates a very mature vision. -Matthew Sweeney, Foreign Accents
Poontet è una piccola, sorprendente finestra aperta sulla effervescente scena musicale di Seattle. . . . Poontet è un'idea del batterista Brad Gibson realizzata con autorevolezza e piglio da leader, con leggerezza e sensibilità negli arrangiamenti, attraverso i quali prende forma una visione musicale matura e convincente. -Vincenzo Roggero, All About Jazz Italia
“If smooth jazz (and I use that term for anything that isn’t straight ahead swing nor Latin-ish) but if smooth jazz didn’t suck and was actually awesome, it would be this record.” -HB Radke
