CONNIE CROTHERS is known for her uncompromising spontaneous improvisation, originality, virtuosity and a wide range of expression.

Her CD—”Conversations”—a duet recording with clarinetist Bill Payne, released in 1988 on New Artists—was chosen by Art Lange and Bill Shoemaker for their best of the year lists.

She leads a quartet, with alto saxophonist Richard Tabnik, drummer Roger Mancuso and bassist Ken Filiano.In January 2007, her quartet released a CD, “Music is a Place,” New Artists, with Ratzo Harris on bass. It was chosen by Stuart Broomer and Bill Shoemaker for their lists of the top ten recordings of the year; it received an honorable mention for best CDs of the year in All About Jazz/New York. In December, 2009, Howard Mandel chose this record for his best of the year list, in a listening category. The band’s two CDs, “Ontology” and “Live, Outpost Performance Space,” with poet Mark Weber, New Artists, received critical acclaim.
