"Wielding alto, tenor, baritone, and soprano saxes, Myanna blows up a storm on an assortment of funk-infused workouts and bluesy organ grooves. Throw in some slow blues, jump blues, and Horace Silver-like Latin-tinged numbers, and this is a superior contemporary-jazz offering." - Ed Kopp, Jazziz Magazine
