MUSIC REVIEW BY Hobart Taylor, KUCI - Irvine, CA

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

Saxophonist/composer Shner working in a quartet format with pianist Josh Hanlon, bassist James Driscoll, and Stockton Helbing on drums has a deft and quasi classical touch, e.g., "Like Satie". Her tunes are carefully crafted and subtly insinuating. Utilizing a tightly controlled high pitched vibrato on the one cover tune, the Billy Strayhorn miracle entitled "Pasion Flower", she demonstates remarkable virtuosity. That would be enough for a lot of folks, but she gives us more. Her tunes like "First Waltz", and the gem "Angst as Usual" contain mature reflection, humor, pathos, and understated grace.
