Sherrie Maricle, the exciting drummer and leader of the all woman big band, Diva, has assembled a quintet of talented ladies for her band within a band, resulting in a hard driving jazz program with varying moods, rhythms and tempi. But gender has nothing to do with it. As Stanley Kay, the founder of Diva puts it, "if you can play, you can play." And these five can certainly play.

Five Play: On the Brink was selected as a 1999 Critics Picks top 5 album in the February 2000 issue of JazzTimes by Nat Hentoff
