about

"This is very good jazz record that is never boring, and demonstrates a very mature vision." -Matthew Sweeney, Foreign Accents

"The group's engaging collective sound is evidence of their seamless camaraderie." -Hrayr Attarian, All About Jazz

"As sensational as the name and the inspiration, Poontet is an all-around decent example of easy listening jazz fusion. . . . Not to be confused with Muzak, Gibson’s hybrid fusion layers in jazz’s harmonic counter-points in cool ways, with a psychedelic rock drive, and funky groove that’s felt more than over-thought or over-wrought. Less cerebral, more moody. . . ." -Carol Weber, AXS

"At its heart, Poontet is a clean contemporary jazz offering with injections of fusion and psychedelic traces. . . . Poontet feels much more like the start of something, and something worth listening to, at that." -Michael J. Warren, Exclaim!

"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

"Trumpeter Scott Morning takes a muscular solo. . . spurred by Gibson's drum fills and driving pulse." -Steve Griggs, Earshot Jazz

“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
