' Susan Larson, The Boston Globe 'A delightfully jazzy romp ...highly entertaining and imaginative work.' Peter Burwasser, New Music Connoisseur ' ... sparing and imaginative ... bucolic and serene ... syncopated and delightfully stylized ... Beautiful and humorous too, ... created the desire to hear more of Beth Denisch.' Richard Johnson, Bay Windows '... Women, Power, and the Journey, a piece commissioned by the (Equinox) quintet that celebrates four St. Louis based women, is absolutely first-rate stuff... it puts forth very clear, cogent ideas and unfolds attractively without cloying. There's purposeful drive to this music, derived in part from the appropriation of African and pop idioms. In fact, the last movement, a tribute to Tina Turner, really rocks in a way that much similarly inspired downtown New York music does not. These wonderfully evocative character entries are simply splendid.' David Cleary, New Music Connoisseur.
