»Considering his age and experience, both his writing and playing show a surprising degree of maturity!«
(JAZZREVIEW, John Kelman, October 2003, USA)

»A Slovenian jazz picnic…elegant and fragrant guitar lines from Šalamon. It is a musical gift of great beauty as refreshing as a dandelion salad, this recording is a fine example of how much jazz there is to hear out there as its future is now, and has been for a while now…«
(ALLABOUTJAZZ, Javier Quinones, September 2003, USA)

»…a successful blend of different musical traditions.«
(JAZZLIVE, Josef Pepsch Muska, September 2003, Austria)

»Arabian Picnic is composed of very interesting and in respect to author's youth incredibly mature compositions, rather improvised musical mixture of jazz and traditional arabian, balcan, indian and other musical elements. Despite their complexity they astonishingly quickly stay in listener's ear. Very, very likeable!«
(DNEVNIK, September 2002, Slovenia)
