Review of Barbara Sfraga & Center Search Quest'slive performance at Satalla: http://www.jazzreview.com/article/review-4147.html

Her [Sfraga's] vocal work is consistantly inventive and sure, and she demonstrates a distinctive feel for how to unlock a song in a new way.” -- BILLBOARD (CRITIC’S CHOICE)

...Chris Sullivan and Michael Thompson are masters of feel, maestros of the deep earthen groove... (fans of Parker and Drake will surely not be disappointed).” -- SIGNAL TO NOISE Magazine

Mala Waldron's playing exhibits a fascinating combination of tension and relaxation that sustains the mood of each composition. -- Shariff Abdur-Salaam, WKCR-FM

New York City-based multi-reedman/composer Allen Won is an artist who fluently segues between the classical and jazz idioms...Won is outwardly comfortable withion a variety of modes. He often soars skyward with passion and fire, yet can spin a memorable melody into an improvisational launching pad... (A top pick for 2005...) --JazzReview.com (on Won’s “The Jewel in the Lotus”)

There's brazenness to Sfraga that's as arresting as it is invigorating. Never content with traditional readings or staid arrangements, she is a master of bold interpretation. -- Jazz Times

...the superb bassist Chris Sullivan and master drummer/percussionist Michael Thompson brings the nuance of each piece that much more brightly to the fore...” -- Jazzreview.com

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
