Nika Rejto is a musical visionary of her time – a master performer who is equally comfortable with classical fugues, including her own compositions, jazz standards, ballads explored in fascinating new ways, and even Latin music that makes it impossible to sit still! In sum, Nika Rejto’s version of music is infectious; it sweeps through an audience from the first offering to the last. Until the inevitable standing ovation, she uses her amazing technique to enthrall, caress, and turn on those lucky audiences who join her in musical celebration. This is no ordinary working of an instrument to produce sound, it is a thrill-inducing experience for audiences as she throws her head back, plays toward the sky, twists and dips with the beat and the mood. Dr. Herb Wong, long time Bay Area impresario got it right, “She had an audience of over 2,000 in her hand—It was very obvious we had a major musician on stage.” AllAboutJazz andJazz Now reviewed Nika’s, Midnite Kiss cd and wrote: “… Nika Rejto soars on this new addition...Compared to the great James Moody, Nika once again teases our souls and delights our ears with Such Pristine Flute Playing it is hard to imagine that she is not touring the world!!! And, “If you don’t MELT to this one you need to kick-start your soul.” To sum it up, Nika has the ability to even make biker’s cry!

“Her improvisation was beautiful, imaginative, swinging, anything but predictable; but what we were really hearing out in the seats was how much she meant every note of it. We got personally involved in her effort; it was as though we were making the journey with her, note by note.”
