"...two big cultural streams flowing simultaneously ...cultural multiplicity in sound taken to a reasonable extreme, where a song can still be allowed to sound logical and beautiful ...ancient and experimental at the same time, and capacious enough to include more and more."
-Ben Ratliff, New York Times

"Dazzling tracks...startling for its balance of unfettered improvisation and undiluted Cuban folklore within a complex and often grand structure. ..stylistic swagger and spiritual heft..."
-Larry Blumenfeld, Wall Street Journal

"The best Latin jazz project in recent memory is this double-disc celebrating the 30th anniversary of pianist-vocalist Rosewoman's esoteric yet quintessentially NYC ensemble. Delightful melody, spine-tingling abstractions and a sagae sense of groove argue for Rosewoman's place among the music's brightest composer-arrangers."
-JazzTimes

"Rosewoman's presence on piano continues to shine as she blends the rhythmic angularites of Thelonious Monk with the jolting harmonic suspense of Jaki Byard and Don Pullen...from gentle melody and hypnotic bata rhythms to...intriguing, loping blues figure and sumptuous harmonies, the music transports as well as transcends in ways, opening various gateways for pleasurable listening without the need to be fully immersed in Afro-Cuban folklore...mesmerizing choral work and serrated funk...the compositions have the potential of becoming new modern jazz standards. One hopes that a follow-up to this transfixing set will come sooner than later."
-DownBeat ****1/2

On her landmark 2013 album New Yor-Uba: 30 Years - A Musical Celebration of Cuba in America, pianist/composer/vocalist Michele Rosewoman pushes the envelope at the outer limits of jazz improvisation while keeping firmly rooted in both jazz and centuries-old Afro-Cuban folkloric tradition. Widely credited as being one of the first composers to synthesize sacred Cuban folkloric music with a thoroughly contemporary jazz concept, Rosewoman's magnum opus, double-cd set - the debut album released on her own Advance Dance Disques label - is the realization of a distinctive creative vision thirty years in the making. New Yor-Uba was named #1 Latin Jazz Recording of 2013 on the NPR Critics Poll.
