Review: Brachfeld delivers a set of music that’s pure heart and fire. She reminds us of the flute’s might and majesty in straight-ahead realms. This band finds a way to leverage different strengths on each track, but it also taps into a universal mentality across the entire date. There’s an incredibly pliant simpatico driving this music ever higher and deeper
