“ The conviction of this music is evident. She dives into moods coming from the ‘70’s and makes you think of Pharoah Sanders, Leon Thomas, Woody Shaw, and more globally, music that prolongs the legacy of Coltrane in his spiritual dimensions and in his lively lyricism.”... As for Roberts, she makes you think of McCoy Tyner and also of all the modern pianists that mix swing and a harmonic-rhythmic approach (Horace Tapscott, John Hicks, Larry Willis.)
