“Thomas’ nicely modulated, secure tone and her mastery of rhythmic and textural complexities, to say nothing of occasional passing notes that give the illusion of floating harmonic instability, all serve her performances very well. But, technical complexity aside, the pleasure principle comes first, and here Thomas doesn’t disappoint us.” Phil Muse (Audio-Video Club of Atlanta)

“All of these composers celebrate the cross-cultural relationships in music that are part of the African Diaspora. They variously pay their respects to the strains in their musical heritage – blues, spirituals and jazz – while aiming at the creation of new music on a post-modern vein. … They are assisted immeasurably by the high degree of musicianship in the members of Thamyris, Atlanta’s internationally famous contemporary music ensemble.” Phil Muse (Atlanta Audio Society)
