"Bull chooses musicians who are as FREE-SPIRITED as she is..."

Lou Grassi, a New York resident of long standing, has literally played from Rag-Time to No-Time…he toured with ragtime pianist Max Morath and has worked with a host of the jazz avant-garde's finest including Marshall Allen, Borah Bergman, Rob Brown, Roy Campbell, Charles Gayle, Gunter Hampel, Phillip Johnston, Sheila Jordan, Perry Robinson , Paul Smoker, and Mark Whitecage among others. He has recently been heard with Roswell Rudd's Broad Strokes band and with his own Po Band, often including guests such as Marshall Allen, Burton Greene and Joseph Jarman.


Joe Fonda-Bass-has developed an extensive international reputation over the last several years recording and touring with world-renowned Anthony Braxton at some of the world's most prestigious jazz festivals including the North Sea Jazz Festival, and the Istanbul International Jazz Festival. He is featured bassist on numerous recordings with Mr. Braxton, including the famed Charlie Parker Project Recordings, as well as the piano quartet recordings with Braxton on piano. Mr. Fonda has performed with such notable musicians as Ken McIntyre, Charlie Persip, Lou Donaldson, Perry Robinson, Kenny Barron, Leo Smith, Curtis Fuller, Chico Hamilton and others.

"Katie Bull and her trio are fine exponents of the American Songbook. Her haunting and meaningful version of the Madeira/Dorsey classic, "I'm Glad There Is You" assures listeners that her "Love (of good standards) is Here to Stay. Bull's music bespeaks an undisguised delight of the emotions she is quite capable of illuminating & exciting new approach in listening."
(George Carroll/The Musicians' Ombudsman 2003)

"...(a) unique delivery and style...Bull's newly released CD, Conversations with the Jokers, immediately qualifies her for that deserving-of-more-recognition category...Bull's scatting tendencies develop naturally when lyrics and words just don't seem enough to get the point across. Her natural swinging ability & risk taking make her a vocalist deserving a listen."
(Laurence Donohue-Greene, All About Jazz 2003)

"There’s no question as to authenticity—one listen to the young vocalist and you’ll hear the wandering, giddy lyricism above rich, dark piano chords that make middle-age melodies youthful. She can scat, too..."
(D. King - Village Voice 2003)

"...a great use of experimental voice work. Using her voice and phrasing as a free instrument alongside Joe Fonda's bass exploits one of the most inventive ideas that have come from the new wave of jazz vocalists...Bull will be a force to be reckoned with in vocal jazz."
(Trevor MacLaren - All About Jazz 2003)

"...has a lot to offer. She blends scatting with lyrics using her warm vocal tones to deliver a strong performance. The program includes some bouncy bossa nova, some funky blues and a lot of courageous vocal improvisation. Promising."
(D. Oscar Grooms - O's Place Jazz Newsletter, 2003)
