O’s Notes: Courage is defined as perseverance of a goal in what is perceived as a challenging or difficult environment. Ellen’s sister Judy Michaels sees jazz improvisation as a courageous act while she is perhaps even more courageous herself having successfully battled ovarian cancer for fourteen years! Rowe (p) embraces the word and dedicates this CD to gentle inspirational modern jazz. Ingrid Jensen (t, flugelhorn), Andrew Bishop (sax) and Paul Ferguson (tb) are among the fine musicians supporting the effort. This is a pleasurable recording.
