In Celebration of Her New "Sensual" album release featuring:

Rachel Z, piano. |  Omar Hakim, drums  |  Jonathan Toscano, bass  |  

“One of the most talented female performers in modern jazz. The most fun part of this experience is trying to guess what her approach will be from tune to tune, and she's certainly full of surprises when it comes to arrangements and ambience. But that overall unpredictability is Z's glorious trademark.” All Music Guide
