Monika Herzig


The jazz super-group of the year is right here – SHEROES! Pianist-composer Monika Herzig convened this amazing group for a second recording by distinguished improvising virtuosi who are all, not just incidentally, women. Monika’s deft, always supportive pianism and her warm, joyous, practical sensibility marks every tune of SHEROES. The release features an international cast of players: Reut Regev (Israel) trombone; Jennifer Vincent (USA/NYC) bass; Ada Rovatti (Italian) tenor sax; Jamie Baum (NYC) flute; Leni Stern (Germany/NYC) electric guitar; Rosa Avila (Mexico/NYC) drums; Myra Casales (Cuba), percussion and Ingrid Jensen(Canada) trumpet. Each member is a first call, in demand jazz artist for multiple groups and a leader/composer/arranger in her own right. Herzig does much of the writing, but Regev, Baum, Vincent, and Stern all contribute compositions, alongside a few covers, including “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” and “House of the Rising Sun."


Together, on this second recording, they are, in the broadest sense, a model of empowerment. As an ensemble, they stand unequivocally as a musical force, with deftness, invention, enthusiasm and ambition. This is extraordinary stuff that deserves your attention.
