Editorial Reviews

Lady of the Island is New York-based flutist Andrea Brachfeld s ZOHO label debut, and her stunning return to the straight ahead jazz world, featuring four hard-swinging originals plus covers by Herbie Hancock, Duke Ellington, and Graham Nash (Crosby, Stills & Nash). Produced by ZOHO artist Bill O Connell, Lady of the Island is Andrea s first pure jazz record, presenting a dream team of sidemen including Wallace Roney on trumpet and Wycliffe Gordon on trombone. Andrea has been a fixture of the New York Latin and jazz worlds for decades, having performed and recorded with Tito Puente, Ray Barretto, Machito, and many others.

Format: Audio CD
Lady of the Island is marvelous, both approachable to the casual listener and intricate in the presentation of musical ideas to grab the studied musician by the ear. The tunes on this compilation swing hard and groove hard, and are executed at the highest level of musicality and musicianship.

Brachfeld is a graduate of The High School of Music & Art and Manhattan School of Music. Her career started in the 1970s and she has recorded with Africando, Noel Pointer, and Timbalaye. Her breakthrough was in the Latin band Charanga `76, where she became the first female flute player to play salsa music in the United States. On every serious list of the 100 Greatest Jazz Flautists, she is listed near the top.

Since she began her professional career as a musician at age 16, she has recorded and played many different genres of music including funk, Country Western, Charanga, Salsa, Latin Jazz, devotional music and more recently, Jazz. Some of the many artists she has associated with include Wayne Wallace, Bobby Carcassés, Oscar Hernandez, Alfredo de la Fe, Ralph Irrizarry, Tito Puente, Ray Barretto, Joe Newman, Hubert Laws, Nestor Torres, Dave Valentín, Paquito D'Rivera, Kenwood Dennard, Hilton Ruiz, Steve Turre, Wycliffe Gordon and Wallace Roney among many others.

To date, this may be the clearest representation of Andrea Brachfeld's expression through her music. Though she has varied tastes in musical approaches and stylistic interpretations, she is a hard bopper at heart, and this is obvious on this album. What a beautiful job of selecting music for this recording! It is very well thought out and there is something for everyone here.
