Music Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone - "[H]er talent is undeniable. The chamber setting provides a feathery pillow for moody tracks like 'Little Fly'..."

JazzTimes (p.70) - "'Knowledge of Good and Evil' is a scat-singing tour de force, 'Chacarera' a percussive tropical treat..."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.108) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The jazz rhythm section plus string trio forms an alluring hybrid, unified by Spalding's capricious imagination and virtuosity."

Paste (magazine) - "Her ability to arrange music and command her accompanists is masterful, her bass-playing virtuosic and her voice can display a pantheon of sounds..."

Record Collector (magazine) (p.83) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[An] ambitious new classical-influenced set...[with an] imaginative fusion of styles."

Uncut (magazine) (p.108) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "A dramatic tango version of 'Wild Is The Wind' and an original piece called 'Apple Blossom' are particularly good."
