“Anna Webber is a rare musician that can comfortably combine intellectual curiosity with pure emotion. Each time I've performed with her, a completely new sound was revealed. She is confident in her path and I am always anxious of her next moves. A brilliant player.”
New York based flute and saxophone player Anna Webber is a versatile improviser holding both an open respect for the tradition of jazz and a healthy disregard for its more worn conventions. Her first album as a leader, ‘Third Floor People’ (Nowt Records, 2010), is an adventurous release featuring two bassless quartets... one from Montreal, the other from New York....

Those who stand up and give the finger to the status quo must be honored. New York saxophonist/flautist Anna Webber does exactly that, with a recording that brags not one, but two bass-less quartets…. Webber takes no prisoners, bayoneting the wounded as she leaves the field of battle... -C. Michael Bailey, All About Jazz
