”An Impressive Showing” - the Washington Post

“An astonishingly assured debut that heralds the arrival of a major new talent.” - Matt Cibula, emusic.com

“Shner's solos can twinkle and extend like Coltrane (in “Elisheva Doll”) or honk and squawk like (a more reserved) Big Jay McNeely (in “Ha Lachma”). There's a lot to like here, from the masterful arranging of traditional pieces that barely lets on that the pieces have a more restrained history of their own, to the sheer force and skill of the players involved. An excellent outing all around.” - Adam Greenberg, AllMusic.com

“...we could be seeing the birth of a great new singular jazz talent. An excellent debut from an artist who shows great promise; keep an eye, and ear, on her.” - Thomas Erdmann, JazzReview.com
