“I was blown away by her emotive playing and her instincts as an arranger/composer——Heads and shoulders above the projects more seasoned artists are turning out today—-A rising young star” Joe Montague Jazz Review.com
“A flat out reed savant—–Her style is poppy—-Pastel, assertive and authoritative—-There’s a certain yearning quality implicit in her playing—–That combines all the right stuff—–She’s a keeper” George W. Carroll Ejazz News.com
“A very impressive album—-The music grooves—-“Good Feelin’” is one of her original songs and I could easily see other saxophonists and musicians adapting and embracing her work—One can only hope she will continue to tantalize and play with a passion—-And solidify her position as one of the great musicians of JAZZ” Author: John Book Music For America
