“The most adventurist upright bass player on the scene now... Dark, sophisticated, depth, honesty, and breathing new life into the global-jazz scene.”

Jimmy Lopez

“There is a sense of mystery in this collection. The CD jacket shows a photo of Cordero posing with her instruments. No text. The text on the CD itself is similarly minimal; as if she wanted to create an air of mystery and deflect attention away from the musicians toward the music itself. A vibe permeates this music hinting that Cordero and her musical colleagues are in possession of a great secret, something deep and arcane that most people may have trouble understanding because it’s so off the beaten path; and they are taking their time explaining it, because understanding it is absolutely necessary. Cordero has crafted a unique masterpiece. I imagine we may expect more works of genius from her.”

“Holly’s jazz compositions are reminiscent of Ornette Coleman and Thelonious Monk, with their angular twelve tone melodies over a strong groove and swing feel. The orchestral pieces showcase a distinctive voice and sense of mystery”
