Malaby/Sanchez/Rainey Trio, Barbes, 8pm, Brooklyn, NY

- The New York Times/Chinen
Sanchez's provocative writing - full of evocative harmonies and open-ended forms showcases her flair for counterpoint and marks her as a formidable talent...
- JazzTimes Magazine
"...introduces a refreshingly unfussy approach to advanced composition.... ...she carries an unforced authority; her virtuosity (not too strong a word) is less solid than fluid, a thing of movement and ease."
