Complex, ambitious record" (A-)
--Tom Hull, Village Voice
CARTWHEELS THROUGH THE COSMOS is that rarity amongst contemporary vocal jazz releases:an album that doesn't rely on a tired repertoire and looks, instead, for innovation in every corner...Her fearless exploration of a myriad of musical nexus points makes CARTWHEELS THROUGH THE COSMOS an album for those who normally stay away from vocal jazz."
--John Kelman, AAJ.com
It's a borderless, cacophonous, in-your-face experiment in tone poetry and free-form expression. It's tough. It's gutsy. It's brilliant."
--Christopher Loudon, JazzTimes
