A formidable bandleader and a renowned featured vocalist in settings from the Brooklyn Philharmonic and the Kronos Quartet to the groups of John Hicks and Andy Bey, she has, in the words of the late, great Randy Weston, “. . . beautiful phrasing and the spirit of our ancestors in her sound past present and future.” With Rod Williams, piano; Rachiim Ausar-Sahu, bass; Mark Johnson, drums.
