REVIEWS
.
Penguin Guide to Jazz on CD: 4 stars

"Christine Wodrascka may not have a 'style' at all, but before the second track has run its course you know you’re in the hands of a serious improviser, a musician who places the highest demands on the piano, the audience, and perhaps most of all herself, and who requires that the musical act be charged with meaning. As a result, the pieces in her program are highly varied but develop strong identities of their own. She invokes an inspiration common to several European improvisers, including Schlippenbach, Schweizer, and Mengelberg. If your tastes run in that direction, you’ll welcome this [recording]."
-Cadence

"She possesses the improvisational quickness of a Marilyn Crispell but shares the musicological structuralist tendencies of Matthew Shipp. Also, the emotional depth in her playing is over the top: Each incident of everyday life is ascribed with a musical color or texture; all minutiae contain traces and shapes of emotional — not merely musical — discourse." -Thom Jurek, All Music Guide (4 stars)
