releases her second self-produced CD, Erica von Kleist & No Exceptions leading her band at NYC's Jazz Gallery for the official CD release party.

Already making her unique mark on the New York jazz scene as one of the most in-demand musicians, performing and recording with Wynton Marsalis, Darcy James Argues Secret Society, Chris Potter, Sean Jones, Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Nicholas Payton Big Band, DIVA and the Grammy® Award-winning Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra.

Recognized by the 2009 DownBeat Critics Poll “Rising Star" on flute, two-time winner of ASCAP's Young Jazz Composer Award and the 2009 Lincoln Center's Martin E. Segal Award, Ms. von Kleist has established herself as a prolific composer, musician and band- leader.

As a follow-up to her 2006 CD Project E, Erica released a second CD with her new band No Exceptions, featuring Zaccai Curtis, Luques Curtis, John Davis, Nadje Noordhuis, Tatum Greenblatt, Dan Pratt, as well as a special guest Dan Nimmer from the Wynton Marsalis Quintet.

The critics and fans alike are praising Erica's latest release:

“She exhibits a refreshingly witty side...anyone who can turn Michael Jackson's “Thriller" into a boogaloo—with an Afro-Cubn coda—is all about serious fun." —John Frederick Moore, JAZZIZ Spring 2011
