Eponymous debut album released on Gilad Atzmon’s Fanfare imprint June 2017.
"An impressive leadership début from Tali Atzmon. The album touches many bases with its wide ranging and evocative arrangements while her lyrics are perceptive and intelligent and enhance the music."
"Tali Atzmon has made a big impression with her début as a leader. The quartet’s combination of instruments must surely be unique and the group utilise their resources colourfully and imaginatively."
