Press Quotes

In 2019, I released “Gunn’s Ablazin'” on all streaming platforms and physical CD. The release show was at Blues Alley and An Die Musik and I am thankful for many wonderful reviews! Hear it on my Spotify.

“Both very artistic and also providing social commentary, the incredible talent present makes it quite easy to see why Gunn was voted Best D.C, Trombonist in two separate years. Similarly, it wouldn’t surprise me if Gunn’s Ablazin’ finds itself being one of the best jazz albums this year.” – Take Effect Reviews Blog

“The result is attractive earworms rather than distracting devices and gestures, as well as dancing melodies, insistent rhythms and wonderfully satisfying harmonies all of add the element of unusual textures…” – Raul Da Gama of Jazz Da Gama blog

“More than her instrumental prowess, this captivating recording also highlights Gunn’s superb musicianship and the relevance of her work both creatively and in the civic sense.” – By HRAYR ATTARIAN at All About Jazz
