The New York Times review by Nate Chinen

Angelica Sanchez Quintet – Wires & Moss (CF 259)
This pianist-composer likes building structures and breaking free of them, as she shows on “Wires & Moss” (Clean Feed), her expressive new release. She has an expert team in place, featuring the same dauntless improvisers as on “Life Between,” from 2008: Tony Malaby on saxophones, Marc Ducret on guitar, Drew Gress on bass and Tom Rainey on drums. She grants them generous license, and the result is often a heightened tension (notably from Mr. Ducret). On “Soaring Piasa” the band eases from open abstraction to simmering incantation so gracefully that the dividing line effectively disappears.
