»Exciting and challenging!«
(JAZZ WEEKLY, George Harris, December 2013, USA)

»Guitarist Samo Šalamon has developed an elastic musical persona adaptable to many situations!«
(JAZZ WORD, Ken Waxman, February 2014, USA)

»Slovenian master guitarist and composer Samo Šalamon is one of those rare musicians whose versatility is not aimless and his unique, instantly recognizable, style is far from predictable… With each new album Šalamon outdoes himself as an artist and Stretching Out is no exception. This handsomely packaged double CD has all the makings of an instant classic.«
(ALLABOUTJAZZ, Hrayr Attarian, November 2013, USA)

»…the hip underground of the New York jazz scene and the experimental sensibility of the European avant-garde… Stretching Out is the perfect portrait of one of the most interesting guitarists in modern jazz. Salamon continues to stretch the boundaries of music and here he engages in an intense dialogue with his working groups and creates an expression that is all his own.«
(Jakob Baekgaard, October 2013, Denmark)

»…diverse compositions, melodic sound-paintings, creative guitar playing and a lot of knowledge when getting bands together. «
(JAZZ PODIUM, Hans Bernt Kittlaus, September 2013, Germany)
