Album Notes
AllAboutJazz describes Ritter as "an under sung jazz master, with each engaging melody buffed up like a little jewel". JazzTimes notes the music as "painterly, exquisite & poetic". Beginning with the great Mary Lou Williams at Duke University in the 1970s, Ritter has studied, worked, performed & recorded with the best, which includes over a decade with MacArthur Grant Genius recipient Ran Blake at New England Conservatory of Boston, where she taught her contemporary songwriting class in the Contemporary Improvisation department during the 1990s. The economic song-like quality & harmonic sophistication of her tunes are hallmarks of Ritter's style, described by Owen Cordle, writer for JazzTimes/News & Observer as "direct, succinct & skillful - like the NC born pianist/composer, Thelonious Monk's style.
