Produced by Dr. Herb Wong, in 1998, this CD features some of the Bay Area's finest musicians, including, Larry Vuckovih on piano, Rick Vandivier, guitar, John Shifflett, bass, Eddie Marshall, drums and Dmitri Matheny, flugelhorn. Recorded at Bay Records in Berkeley, engineered by Robert Shumaker. Read the rave reviews below! Nika Rejto BRIDGE WEAVER JAZZ IMPROV, SPRING 1999 The piano steps in mournfully and speaks quietly to itself. Then she arrives - "My Funny Valentine" is sad, a low flute with prodigious vibrato. Low, she weeps; on the bridge she takes some high flutters with brightest purity. The theme concludes and come the solo Nika is classical, taking her time with graceful notes. We proceed, and she turns happy; some high whoops, a rapid run up the stairs, and woven patterns before she grows simple and calm. At the end theme we find her high and optimistic, the birds chirp, and when the vibrato returns at the close, it doesn't seem so sad. The daughter of a famous cellist, Nika Rejto is possessed of great speed and impressive technique, which "My Funny Valentine" has in abundance. Personally, I like her tone best when she plays simply. "How Insensitive" has a marvelous intro, and sadness greater than the previous tune and all it's vibrato. The direct approach serves her well, and results in the best tracks. "Naima" features a warm grace, helped by the mellow presence of Dmitri Matheny. They sound great on the unison parts; this one is a keeper. Matheny sticks around for Mingus' "Jelly Rolls;" both horns are throaty and have fun as they romp around the theme. Matheny sounds like a trombone at one point, and Nika is her most bluesy. An original, "Song for Abraham" (heard again later, this time with evocative words) is a gentle sunny day, with Nika sounding like recorder at the end. The warmth really shines on a tender "Chelsea Bridge" (Matheny again used to great effect on the ensemble parts) and "My Romance," which has Nika and Rick Vandivier waltzing in a gorgeous duet. His brief solo is a joy to behold, and a highlight of the disc. The gentle moments glow, and as a whole it's a pleasant listen. There is definitely talent here, and Nika could make some impact on the tiny world of jazz flute. John Barrett, Jr. Jazz Improve Spring 1999 *********** Nika Rejto BRIDGE WEAVER by Jack Bowers JAZZ NOW/December 1998 It's not often these days that one has a chance to hear a truly gifted Jazz Flutist, which makes newcomer Nika Rejto's debut that much more welcome and impressive. She's given an enormous buildup in Dr. Herb Wong's liner notes, and, lo and behold, Bridge Weaver usually lives up to it. What sets Rejto apart? Well, for one thing, she thinks carefully about what she is doing, so her improvisations make musical sense while pleasing one's ear and enhancing his perceptions. Not that others don't do the same; but then, there are only a handful of working flutists with whom to compare her - old hands Frank Wess, Herbie Mann, James Moody, relative youngsters Ken Peplowski, Holly Hofmann, Jane Bunnett, and a few others. The field is relatively wide open, and there appears to be ample room for another voice to be heard, especially one as well endowed as Rejto's. Although it's not yet perfectly formed, the vocabulary is solidly in place and needs only a dash of seasoning to make it thoroughly desirable. Vuckovich is a marvelous pianist. Matheny aces his two appearances (on "Jelly Roll" and Coltrane's "Naima"), and everyone else lends resolute support. A solid debut that almost demands an encore. A great CD of standards and one original, "Song For Abraham," Nika Rejto makes it all seem so beautiful. The music is gentle and flows like a warm summer breeze. Each musician stays in sync, playing with such high-class sophistication. Rejto's style is haunting, yet so very peaceful. The emotion in each track is openly delivered. Larry Vuckovich sends more tender piano sounds our way and it totally enhances Rejto's performance. The mood picks up a little shuffle with Mingus' "Jelly Roll," and "Weaver of Dreams" which are both fun
