He easily plays the most inventive chords as an accompaniment to the vocalist and he also easily solos in beautiful long melodic lines. He is resourceful in his choice of tone and his timing.” - Dick Hermsen. Alongside Tiago, active in multiple projects in jazz, brazilian music and portuguese fado are the german origin double bass player Hendrik Muller and Sun-Mi Hong, born and raised in In-Cheon, Korea.

With a signature of rooted groove in combination with well tempered outbursts, Sunmi has placed herself strongly in the Dutch jazz scene. “Three seriously talented musicians who will rejoice the jazz landscape in the coming decades.” - Roland Oomens
