Composer Roshanne Etezady’s sense of fun and surprise finds willing partners as the first prelude uses silence to great effect leading to a flute pedal that is answered by purposely stilted steps then leave the listener guessing just when the last "bop" will be heard.
Hailed by the Detroit Free Press as "a promising and confident composer," Roshanne Etezady is emerging as one of the most dynamic musical voices of her generation. Her music ranges from clever and colorful to sublimely subdued; it combines lyricism with rhythmic intensity and engages performers and audiences alike.

"fresh, effusive, and immediately likeable."
"Etezady's speedy, heady STREETLEGAL... is a pleasingly violent, bravura flourish."
