Through it all Brenda Hopkins Miranda directs proceedings with an inimitable stabbing percussive pianism. Her improvisations, unexpected at times, are the perfect union of intellect and emotion. And they can lead us to paths full of surprises without losing coherence and fluidity. ~ Latin Jazz Network
And Miranda is a master of setting up various grooves and allowing the art of improvisation and invention to take hold. ~ Jazz Inside Magazine
