In 2012, Soo met Austrian music producer Peter Guschelbauer at the Jazzahead in Bremen/Germany. He invited Soo and Javier to perform at his jazz festival in Steyr/Austria in March 2013. Having received great critical acclaim at the jazz festival, Soo decided to start working on entirely new compositions which were subsequently recorded in Peter Guschelbauer’s Sounddesign Studio in Hagenberg/Austria.The new CD entitled Ballerina was presented at the STIWA Jazz Forum in Hagenberg/Austria in April 2014.
