A vanguard and pioneering artist in her field, Michele Rosewoman mines acoustic modern jazz, sophisticated funk, dynamic electric fusion and elements of Cuban folkloric music, to create a distinct musical experience. Her command and vocabulary elegantly expand the horizons and boundaries of jazz while remaining firmly rooted in its tradition. With a more than 30-year history, Rosewoman stands out in her class as a visionary pianist, composer bandleader, educator and gifted performer.

"...two big cultural streams flowing simultaneously ...cultural multiplicity in sound taken to a reasonable extreme, where a song can still be allowed to sound logical and beautiful...ancient and experimental at the same time, and capacious enough to include more and more."
Ben Ratliff, The New York Times

"....startling for its balance of unfettered improvisation and undiluted Cuban folklore within a complex and often grand structure---stylistic swagger and spiritual heft."
Larry Blumenfeld, The Wall Street Journal
