From the first moments of Maria’s latest self-titled cd, I was instantly filled with the overwhelming realization that I was listening to an artist of extraordinary integrity, focus and multi- textured convictions. It was a feeling that coursed through me, startled me, and I felt at once so honored to know her as a musician and grateful for her presence in our cultural landscape. In this retrospective collection, the listener is treated to a rewarding timeline of Maria’s compositions and interpretations, although it feels less like a linear endeavor than it does a three dimensional wave full of depth and froth. My favorites: the pulsing groove of Mango Rouge, the mysteries of Midnight in Gibraltar, the hypnotic Amaboko, and the soulful Amazing Grace.”
