"Pianist Rachel Z has emerged from the shadows of Peter Gabriel to form one of the most innovative trios to come along in some time."-Nate Guidry,Pittsburg tribune

Biography

Z has long been adept at bridging genres, and her group, Dept. of Good and Evil, continued that path Saturday night.They played Sting's"King of Pain" and invited trumpeter Sean Jones to the stage to assist with Wayne Shorter's "ESP."
The group then launched into Pink Floyd's "Comfortably Numb" and performed It's No Good from Depeche Mode. But the trio made its greatest impact on "Angry Chair," a song by Alice in Chains. How many jazz trios have that kind of repertory?-- Nate Guidry, Post-Gazette jazz critic 5/22/07
Perhaps it's wishful thinking, but the Department of Good and Evil's album just might be the generation-gap bridge that brings open-minded young hipsters and their folks together.
Steve Smith Time Out NY April 5-11,2007
her improvisations are often so harmonically rich and multifaceted that "Dept. of Good and Intriguing" ultimately seems like a more apt billing. -- Mike Joyce
