"Karibu is yet another musical postcard from Elizabeth Woodbury Kasius as she and her muse continue their journey to far off lands and cultures-some of which have yet to have been discovered-and to the outer reaches of her awe-inspiring imagination. Once again she and her talented bunch of co-conspirators have conjured up new worlds, new mysteries, and new musical pathways. I treasure the music of Elizabeth & Heard because in it I hear and feel an unbounded joy and an irresistible optimism that never fail to surprise, delight and uplift me." - Hal Miller, drummer and jazz writer/historian

"Elizabeth Woodbury Kasius & Heard have a fantastic original repertoire, a really delightful stage presence and a generosity with each other as musicians and also with the audience....What a pleasure!"--Maria Zemantauski, Flamenco Guitarist and Cultural Events Coordinator Hudson Valley Community College, Troy, NY 

"Intensely personal....beautiful music"-Michael Ludwig, Associate Concertmaster Philadelphia Orchestra

"...sophisticated and melodic, reminding me of Sondheim and Stravinsky with a touch of Astor Piazolla. But make no mistake, Woodbury Kasius has a clear and intriguing voice that is all her own and a pleasure to hear." -Janet Loudon, Glens Falls (NY) Post-Star

"Shade Songs" is my favorite locally produced cd of the year. It's a captivating album that takes the listener on unexpected journeys through the realms of classical, jazz and world music." -Greg Haymes, Albany (NY) Times Union

"Deliciously elegant...a resourceful composer of eclectic tastes and graceful eloquence."-Michael Hochanadel, Schenectady (NY) Gazette

"Nocturnal dreaming infused with a dose of jazz-groove and the dramatic dissonance associated with Kronos Quartet and Steve Reich." -Thomas Dimopoulos, The Saratogian (NY)

"Shade Songs gently morphs through world rhythmic variations and quick jazz figures, subtly pushing at the edges of Western classical tradition." -Metroland (Albany, NY)

"Elizabeth Woodbury Kasius has succeeded in molding out of the universal possibilities of music a language of her own, defining her personal voice, while remaining open to a world of new influences."  It has been a pleasure to know her and to collaborate with her." -Jovino Santos Neto, pianist/composer Jovino Santos Neto Quarteto, Hermeto Pascoal Group

"A fresh, decidedly American sound, with echoes of Copland and Philip Glass." -Sarah Ayers, electronic/ambient recording artist

Jupiter Circles music has a clarity and buoyancy all its own.... I'm so pleased that I had the opportunity to get lost in such refreshingly new and---in my opinion---thoroughly adventurous music which defies categorization....” -Hal Miller, drummer/percussionist & jazz writer 


"Elizabeth Woodbury is an emerging composer and pianist whose music evokes the great composers of South America." -John Ehlis, guitarist/composer, John Ehlis Ensemble
