(101) David Licht, Modern Drummer -- 01/07/1999

The title of the Jeanette Wrate Northern Lights Ensemble’s Echoes of a Northern Sky refers to the drummer’s search for her Scandinavian roots. Brilliant compositions and exquisite sound quality allow all the members of the ensemble to shine. Extended solos emerge from clearly stated themes. Ms. Wrate’s drumming is crisp, propulsive, and imaginative throughout. Everyone listens and interacts on this date.
