"In essence, Choulai is a meticulous technician via a richly lyrical, yet often, animated type of delivery. . . .No doubt, Choulai's music is cerebral yet soothing, and emphatic. . . "The Return of Dixon," augmented by Wendholt's supercharged soloing endeavors. We surmise, that the best is yet to come from this bright, twenty-one year old artiste."
