”Linda Presgrave is truly a discovery who is pouring her heart into her first recording of national distribution.” —Don Williamson - 52nd Street Jazz

“The St. Louis transplant Linda Presgrave, a probing, resourceful mainstream pianist with an impressive debut album, In Your Eyes, prowls the bebop landscape for all the stylistic diversity it can offer.” —The New Yorker

”With her lyrical playing and a stellar ensemble, Presgrave adeptly mines the secular and spiritual side of the music while paying homage to her heroines.” For more information, visit www.metropolitanrecordsnyc.com - by Terrell Holmes 30 May 2006 | ALL ABOUT JAZZ
