…Association (AACM) stalwarts and musical power couple
Steve and Iqua Colson will perform with their band.
– New York Times

And the Media says…………..

“Adegoke’s compositions and Iqua’s beautiful vocal work make this group outstanding.”

– Downbeat Magazine

 “At times the veteran Colson nearly steals the show – not with flash but with depth and imagination.”

Steve Holtje – CDNOW

“The festival ended with a celebrated concert given by the Colsons.”

Kleine Zeitung Graz – Austria

“Indisputably the Colsons constituted the revelation of the festival…The concert was eagerly anticipated and we were not deceived…Steve Colson is an interesting pianist (using many chords)…it is Iqua who captivates us with her formidable presence. In unison with the sax or improvising on lyrics or scatting, always her voice wins us over…”

Alex Dutilh – Jazz Hot Magazine – France

“Colson was fluid at the piano with Iqua vocalizing efficiently with fascinating phrasing.” – Coda Magazine – Canada

Iqua appeared on stage…my immediate reaction was “where has she been hiding?” in a world of vapid vocalists with empty promises and no substance. Iqua was tres magnifique! Her articulation and knowledge of her craft was exceptional and her delivery simply divine.”

– Jazz Improv Magazine

 “Colson has forged a cool and collected style for himself, with a warm touch, liquid phrasing, and the witty suggestion of Monkian harmonies….”

Gary Giddins – The Village Voice

 “Pianist-saxist Steve and vocalist Iqua make music in the jazz tradition, yet utterly original and out of the ordinary.”

Gene Kalbacher – Editor Hot House – New York Jazz Nightlife Guide

“The ensemble of Steve Colson, a pianist and composer, presented an impressive set.”

Robert Palmer – New York Times
