"Record reviews as politically-charged polemics are generally frowned upon, the operating adage arguing that writerly personal agendas should color critical calculus as minimally as possible. Reedist Roxy Coss’ The Future is Female challenges the tenacity of this unspoken pact between artist and reviewer from its title onward. Musically, the program is very much in tune with her past Positone projects as a leader in its assemblage of keenly composed postbop originals realized with the aid of an ensemble of skilled associates that includes guitarist Alex Wintz, pianist Miki Yamanaka, bassist Rick Rosato and Jimmy MacBride rounding out the insurgency team on drums."
