Melford can be rhythmic, romantic, stoic, wry, and lusty but most of all daring — all in one tune. More importantly she‘s reconnected music to motion, leaving today‘s straightlaced young men in suits, who have dominated recent jazz, in her wake.
The London Observer
Ms. Melford's solo piano concerts focus on a new book of original compositions inspired by the artwork of her friend, the late Sacramento-based artist Don Reich (1931-2010), but often include some of her other works as well as arrangements of music by Ornette Coleman and Andrew Hill. She has performed this program at the Northampton Center for the Arts (as part of the World of Piano series) and the Guelph Jazz Festival. A studio recording entitled, Life Carries Me This Way, is planned for an October 2013 release on Firehouse 12 Records.
