★ ★ ★ ★ “Stunningly original ” – Downbeat Jazz Magazine
★ ★ ★ ★ 1/2 “Beautiful … touching … elevating.” – Jazzism
★ ★ ★ ★ “Koo is the type of piano player that appears to be painting with luscious pastel strokes. Melodies that, like a goldfinch, elegantly lift off and settle down again.” – Trouw
“With his CD Appleblueseagreen, that would perfectly fit in the catalog of a label such as ECM, Alex Koo delivers a fine example of what he’s capable of.” – Jazz’Halo
“Enchanting moments … music that appeals to the imagination. Koo has a well thought out sound; every note has meaning. He is a magnificent piano player, with great respect for detail, sense of color and dynamics.” – Jazzenzo
“We should be thankful that the young Koo -after having lived in The Netherlands, Copenhagen and the United States- is back in Belgium again. Because this record truly makes you dream!” – Jazz&Mo
