From The Press

Gifted saxophonist Jean Fineberg’s skill and musicality on tenor and flute were obvious. Her sound is strong-toned, vigorous, intense and technically accomplished. She is potentially a major player with a distinctive personal presence.

New York Post

The Jean Fineberg Quartet played with a strongly directed, swinging drive that got its impetus from Fineberg’s use of the assertive saxophone phrasing associated with Sonny Rollins. To this, she added her own broad full tone and strong gutsy attack.

New York Times

Jean Fineberg is exceptionally promising.
