 “but it’s Diane Peters who steels it for me with her heavenly harp”

 

The Age Nov 20 2009:

“Diane Peters Trio” Marion Cultural Centre (Australia )

“the trio achieved an unusually beguiling sound” “…The ensemble produced a dream-like quality with the harp rippling and flowing while the viola lead with the theme and Aue’s acoustic bass underscored…”

 

about her own c.d. Archaeopteryx (Australia)

“…There have been preciouse few harpists in jazz history, Alice Coltrane being the most notable Diane Peters does her bit………the music is undeniably distinctive…”

“…the harp may seem an incongruous addition to a jazz ensemble but once the recording begins preconceptions cease to be an issue…”

 

James Morrison:

“…In the 21st century Jazz is a mature artform; hence its very seldom that something new, fresh and individual comes along…”
