A gifted starbright talent of the first magnitude, Sara is a top tier member of the young generation of major voices—regardless of instrument. As a formidable, arresting violin soloist in both classical and jazz idioms, she has sealed her membership in that echelon with incandescent brilliance. Her prodigious technique permits beautiful intonation begetting a beautiful sound and shaded emotions. But Beautiful- an exquisite recording where every single golden not from front to back is simply...beautiful.
—From the album notes by Dr. Herb Wong, broadcaster, educator and past president of the International Association for Jazz Education.
