Ayn Inserto's second recording with her jazz orchestra
is grand and sophisticated to a degree as to immediately elevate
her status alongside acknowledged influences, and well known, experienced
chart makers like Maria Schneider, Bob Belden, and Mark Masters.
Especially if you are not familiar with her name and sound, keep
Ayn Inserto's Muse in serious consideration for a distinguished
place in your collection. It is an excellent representation of what's
happening in her virile, imaginative mind, and comes highly recommended.
—Michael G. Nastos, All Music Guide
...her compositional approach breathes new life into the idiom.
She claims Maria Schneider and Bob Brookmeyer as muses but, to my
ear, she has already equaled and perhaps surpassed these august
icons in sheer musical sophistication. It’s quite clear on
the evidence of this recording that Ayn Inserto has a bright future
ahead of her...I unhestiatingly give Muse my highest recommendation.
—David Kane, Cadence
She really is an amazingly gifted composer/arranger. I hope she
gets some serious recognition in years to come.
