• An astounding debut album by saxophonist-composer Sarah Elgeti : born in East Germany, she has lived in Denmark since 1998. She presents a supremely inspired and assured album of her own compositions, sounding equally at home on ballads, bossa, funk, swing, bop and avant-garde - yet incredibly, moulding them into a fine, unified recording.

• Sarah Elgeti, who has led her own quintet since 2007, plays tenor and soprano saxophone, flute, and clarinet, and is a highly talented composer and arranger. She is joined by her remarkable quintet : Marianne Markann-Eriksen: alto + baritone sax; Christian Bluhme Hansen: guitar; Jens Kristian Andersen: bass; and Thomas Praestegaard: drums; plus guests, Ben Besiakov: keyboards; Mikkel Uhrenholdt & Magnus Poulsen: alto sax.

• “Sarah Elgeti's ‘Into the Open’ CD will likely be considered one of the best debut jazz releases of 2012 by those who hear it.” - Scott Albin, Jazz Times (US)

• “Virtually unknown in the United States, with this gem of a recording, Elgeti is poised to take her music into the open embrace of American audiences.” - Edward Blanco, All About Jazz.

• “Into The Open is an incredible mosaic of sound and should have critical heads turning here in the United States. More than just a pretty face, Sarah Elgeti is the real deal.....an impressive release not to be missed!” - Critical Jazz.
