      "The soulful originals on "Always There" allow Mala Waldron to communicate emotionally, while her genius at the piano and keyboards allows her to communicate musically. The two modes overlap, of course, as she interprets lyrics and scats with authority."Publication: All About Jazz
    • "Always There" CD review - Mala Waldron

      "The daughter of jazz piano great Mal Waldron rests on her own laurels with this delightful recording ... Ms. Waldron successfully bridges that fine line between serious instrumental fare and pop-like viability. ... this album rises a notch or two above the norm (Not to be overlooked...)" -- Glenn AsteritaPublication: Jazz Review
