“Among the most important composers to come into jazz in the new millennium.” – Thomas Conrad, JazzTimes
“[Road to the Sun is] a radiant, diverse and refreshing listen. The initial inspiration for [Figarova’s sextet] was to create a small unit that could convey the scope and power of a big band. By that measure, she’s succeeded, wildly.” – Jeff Potter, DownBeat
After 20 years at the helm of her acclaimed acoustic sextet, taking her across the globe and onto such renowned stages as the Newport Jazz Festival and New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, pianist Amina Figarova embarks on a bold new chapter with the release of Persistence, on her own AmFi Records imprint, the Azerbaijani-born pianist debuts her exploratory new ensemble Edition 113, an electric band grooving somewhere in the sweet spot between jazz fusion, classic R&B, inventive hip-hop and progressive funk.
