The precision of each composer’s contribution to the project, highlights the unification of mastery by each musician beyond their remarkable playing technique. Together they bond for the overall success of a unified project. This teamwork, is what makes this release head and shoulders in its presentation.”

Review: Hrayr Attarian, All About Jazz

Hrayr Attarian says: “The 25th Anniversary Project is an intriguing set of ten originals by various members of band that highlights their inventive and imaginative artistry… This recording is the result of a quarter century of artistic maturation that has crystalized in an exquisite display of high caliber musicianship. Thanks to Maricle’s dynamic leadership the group continues to captivate and thrill.”

Review: Step Tempest

Richard B. Kamins says: “Diva Jazz Orchestra may be 25 years old but this album sounds fresh and on target.  There’s neither a weak tune nor boring solo in the 65-minute program. Yes, you can hear echoes of Count Basie, touches of Duke Ellington, a bit of Woody Herman but they are just that – echoes.  What truly stands out is how strong this music, how much fun the musicians are having as an ensemble, and how positive the listening experience is.  Happy “25th Anniversary Project”!  Here’s to many more.”
