A touchstone of the improvised music scene for over thirty years, this RJA favorite keeps collecting accolades for her fearless approach to contemporary composition. “As a bandleader,” adds New York Times jazz critic Giovanni Russonello, she “finds a happy balance between assiduous precision and flagrant risk.” On its best of 2018 list, the San Diego Union Tribune described Snowy Egret’s latest album as “lilting one moment, raw and edgy the next, and a delight throughout.”
