Described as a “brilliant pianist” by legendary saxophonist Benny Golson, Hey Rim Jeon has been featured on NBC’s Weekend Today in New York and KBN, Korea’s national TV network. As leader of her band, Hey Rim Jeon & Friends, she has performed nationally and internationally. Her album Mona Lisa Puzzle was described as an "intense, intelligent statement" by Bill Milkowski of JazzTimes, won Best Jazz Album at the 2009 New England Urban Music Awards, and was listed on CD Baby's "Top 10 Modern Creative Jazz Albums." Her latest album, Groovitude, featuring Grammy Award–winning drummer Terri Lyne Carrington and other acclaimed Berklee faculty members, will be released later this year.
