"Shonai nailed it at The Piano Man. His trio had made people swing to their tune. The show was pretty good! Shonai was a hit last night!"

-Amuze Records review
"We were introduced to the Kolkata Trio; Shonai, a bit late in the album, but their groovy piano-led tunes add a funky touch to Foxtrot Project V2 with ‘Walking on Air’ and a tribute to the legend, Carlton Kitto, with the somber but gratitude-filled ‘An Ode to Mr. Kitto’ "
