It is a stimulating live session of provocative and thrilling improvisation and kaleidoscope of ambiences...Once again Salamon has produced an innovative and singular work. The Colours Suite is filled with fresh ideas and superb musicianship «

»Slovenian guitarist Samo Salamon belongs to unique guitarists on the contemporary jazz scene...complex polyrhythms and complex overlapping structures appear in the spirit of modern and elaborate free-jazz!« 
(SK Jazz, Slovakia, April 2017)

»Samo Salamon wrote the suite thinking about the personalities of these musicians. This was the modus operandi of Duke Ellington, and there’s something of that heritage here, namely the combination of complex harmonic and rhythmic motives with open improvisation, the results giving us the «feel of a living organism». In two words: powerful music, not to be missed!.«
