"Thanks for bringing your CD to Shakti Books! It's incredible! I'm blown away by the spirituals, the duet with the bassist, and the scatting on "While We're Young". This is quickly becoming one of my favorite jazz discs.

ISTHMUS: MAD TRACKS REVIEW
"Up Jump Spring" (Freddie Hubbard')
"...Ms. Margaret essays the entire tune with only Eric Hochberg's dancing acoustic bass for accompaniment. Her interaction with Hochberg is light and free and very much a mutual conversation. Margaret shows her mettle by following up with some impressionistic scatting that allows the tune to deliquesce very naturally.""
