"Sarah Morrow..... is moving the instrument and the music forward".

Trombone great SteveTurre

“En un mot, Sarah Morrow était vraiment Fabuleuse et Magistrale durant toute sa prestation, Chapeau Lady !!!”

“Trombonist Sarah Morrow, who was sitting in with the band, was also a star of the evening. Her playing had a lot of character and variety; she would smoothly slide across the trombone's range and then add colorful percussive bursts.”

“Sarah Morrow expressed herself with her golden trombone... with well thought out phrases... her bald game continues in the tradition of the giants like Curtis Fuller, J.J. Johnson... Sarah Morrow is rising and may well be rising very high in the near future.”

“The rhythm takes accents of improvisation and swing in a party type ambiance. Sarah makes her trombone sing with finesse and gives punch to her quintet. Her sound and her strong sense of rhythm, her assurance makes her one of the most important figures of "Jazz trombone" today!”

Jazznotes, France

“Trombonist Sarah Morrow and tenor player Abdu Salim were the biggest surprises of the 10-day Marciac Jazz Festival. Morrow played a highly individual form of straight ahead jazz, bristling with energy and challenging arrangements that featured solid backup.”

Jean Szlamowicz - Downbeat

“...a superior show...an exceptional musician. Frankly, I was blown away....”

W. Royal Stokes, renowned jazz author, contributor to the annual DownBeat Critic

“Sarah Morrow's band, that included Reggie Jackson on drums, swung like mad. And Morrow- the first female insturmentalist to be hired by Ray Charles, WAILED. her work on the slide trombone was first-rate, bluesy, swinging, blaring and bold, all the the delight of the crowd... it was musical and fun.”

“Sarah Morrow, trombonist, holds the distinction of having been the first female instrumentalist to tour with Ray Charles, but the emphasis there should really be placed on instrumentalist rather than female, because she's an impressively strong and soulful player, regardless of gender.”
