"Ellen Rowe has produced an excellent recording, SYLVAN WAY, that showcases her immense talents as a composer and pianist. Ellen's original creations possess lyricism and harmonic surprises that take no back seat next to the standard material presented. The program is nicely balanced with swinging tunes, Latin flavors and caresses the listener with lush romantic moods. Ellen assembles three excellent rhythm sections with one horn to accompany her. Stellar bassist, John Clayton, is featured with his bow on Rowe's hauntingly beautiful ballad, HYMN. This CD definitely invites repeated listening. Enjoy, SYLVAN WAY, as I have. BRAVO Ms. Rowe!"  Rufus Reid, Bassist
