QUINTET

A continuation of her 2009 sophomore release "Relentless" (Jazz Legacy Productions), Sharel's Quintet continues forward with new music composed and arranged by the saxtress herself that is both fiery and reflective. Executed with a stellar NYC based band and Sharel playing alto and soprano saxophones, this band has enough fire to warm up the arctic. 

A modern sound stemming from the masters of straight ahead jazz, her compositions and prowess on the saxophone have gained her ASCAP & Downbeat awards and recognition. As a Cherokee native of Oklahoma, she has been inducted in to the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame and continues to make waves on the New York City & international jazz scenes.
