Maiden's Voyage review / Jazz Weekly
"...hip modern jazz... 'All That I Feel' closes the album like a Monet oil. Rich textures and reflections here."
— George W. Harris
Maiden's Voyage: "Catherine Marie Charlton produces performances that are fresh, articulate and extremely poised."
This is a remarkable record. Each score contains richly expressive material that tests the concentration of the performer. As led by meticulous attention to rhythm, balance and harmonic implications, Catherine Marie Charlton produces performances that are fresh, articulate and extremely poised. Each is a marvel of liquid flow amid vast reservoirs of sound, well recorded by Eric Troyer and mastered by Phil Nicolo. If only more recordings were produced with such meticulous care for production values.
