Beautiful new record from the flutist, composer and occasional singer Leah Paul…chamber music that has morphed into a kind of art songs, nicely done”
-John Schaefer, New Sounds WNYC

“…you’d think she’d have plenty worries of her own, what with trying to achieve a deft balance of classical, jazz and art-song aesthetics in her music. But she has done it with such seeming ease that it’s hard to find the seams…there’s no shoehorning of styles, no self-satisfied sense of achievement merely from bringing things together. Rather it’s a natural flow from an artist who seemingly has never considered there are different styles, but that music is music.” -Steve Hochman, Tuesday Reviewsday, Southern California Public Radio

“A nearly impossible to pin down flutist and composer…Paul has delivered another category-defying beauty with her latest album…a lush and dreamy take on modern chamber music.”
-Chris Barton, LA Times

” It took a while to get used to this music as it is unlike anything I’ve heard in a long while. I must admit that I am both enchanted and mystified by this disc and figure that it will take several listens to comprehend what it is that makes so magical and indescribable.” – Bruce Lee Gallanter, DMG

“Navigating between jazz, experimental and contemporary music with confidence and authority”
