Review: Fuller returns after a 6-year absence filled with touring & teaching. This talented jazz composer, arranger, alto and soprano saxophonist, and Berklee educator creates a wide range of engaging performances with her multitalented group. She possesses a beautiful, luminous tone; stunning technique; and highly-imaginative ideas on both of her horns, while surrounding herself with master musicians in a very empathetic musical group settings, including here by two Hall of Fame musicians: drummer Jack DeJohnette, plus double bassist Dave Holland
If You Like: john Coltrane, Wayne Shorter, Sonny Rollins
