Mariea Antoinette - "Straight from the Harp"
Mariea Antoinette Release "Straight From The Harp" packs a solidly youlful wallop and pardon the pun-struck a chord in me that simply couldn't be ignored. Her touch on the harp is riveting and well-defined" Mariea Antoinette definitely has a home in smooth jazz...
Ronald Jackson, Smooth Jazz Ride
The modern touches are in evidence taking the harp to places you have only heard in dreams. This inspirational/aspirational player hits it out of the park so strongly the ball might never come back to earth, her playing comes together in a way that blows your mind. Well done through out.
Midwest Records Review, New Music
Once you indulge in this Magnum Opus project you will agree that it's extraordinary and her delivery is exceptional. "Straight From The Harp" showcase the detailed virtuosity that has made Mariea one of the best on her instrument.
