September US Tour Amina Figarova

“A skilled and imaginative composer…Born in Azerbaijan and based in Rotterdam, Netherlands, Figarova brings a remarkably broad range of influences to her works, which may help explain their appeal. You can hear the influence of her classical training in the care she brings to her scoring. Yet the mercurial, unpredictable nature of her musical themes — and the intriguing way she develops them — points to a composer enraptured with the creative possibilities of jazz.” –  Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune
