"As more listeners in this country and around the world get to hear FIVE PLAY, DIVA, and the growing number of other jazzwomen, the sheer joy and strength of their music will effortlessly bring pleasure Ð in Duke EllingtonÕs liberating phrase Ð beyond category." This is a CD with swinging joy in the solos and ensembles, ballads that are like overhearing an intimate conversation, one that is full of continual surprises - such is the challenging nature of this music. - From the album notes by Nat Hentoff, celebrated author, journalist and jazz authority who writes about jazz for The Wall Street Journal and Jazz Times
