“Jazz music was once dubbed “the sound of surprise” … It’s great then to come across musicians like Stephanie Urquhart, the versatile pianist-composer-improviser who puts the surprise factor back into smart, new original music.”
– Roger Levesque (Edmonton Journal)

“Stephanie is one of the most truly talented musicians around, and what she brought to this performance is an emotion and an awareness of real, and hard-won feeling. Moments of activity and happiness (and hipness) are all expressively played with joy and sensitivity. Truly though, it is the ballads, and the stories and feelings behind the drive to write and play this music so beautifully, that captured hearts and wrapt attention in this group’s dedicated performance.”
– Charlie Austin, author of the internationally
renowned book “An Approach to Jazz Piano”
