In an age when many so-called "jazz lions" release recordings that rely on high-powered publicity instead of mature musicality, Ms. Rodman's CD is a welcome departure from that practice. It's a record that documents the origins of an artist who has paid her dues with countless hours of practice, sideman apprenticeship and introspection. Ms. Rodman is joined by a fine array of New York City's finest musicians including: trumpeter Russ Johnson, tenor saxophonist Tony Malaby and Loren Stillman on alto and soprano sax, Bob Bowen on bass and drummer Ari Hoenig.

The CD's eight tracks reveal Rodman's eclectic influences. Pianistically she combines the harmonic imagination of Herbie Hancock, the swinging drive of Gene Harris and the motific genius of Ahmad Jamal. That Holy Trinity of the keyboard is framed in Rodman's involved and engaging compositions.
