Pat Metheny wrote about her first album "Tales" wrote: “I have been listening to your CD - and you all sound really good on there! Nice blend between you and I think it is great that you seem to be working hard on trying to get your own group sound and concept happening!”. Her way of playing is a combination of virtuosity with subtle femininity, she feels good in many musical styles, moving freely in various conventions. She collaborates with jazz musicians and also plays with symphony orchestras and string quartets.
