Tia Fuller tore through her new album, Decisive Steps with artistic perfection. The astonishingly gifted Colorado-born alto/soprano saxophonist/flautist effortlessly improvised a number of moods and grooves. From her show stopping solos as a member of Beyonce's all female band to her scintillatingly agile buoyant and elegant full-bodied sax lines, Tia Fuller is at home at all points of the musicverse. The first song on the CD, titled after the album, Decisive Steps was one of the last songs that she wrote for the album. Fuller says she wanted to portray a sonic representation of momentum that really features everyone on the quartet. Another great song 'Windsoar' features her sister, Shamie on piano.

"Decisive Steps" is a long-awaited follow-up to Tia Fuller's 2007 label debut "Healing Spaces". Fuller says, "I've been in the mindset of really moving forward to the next level of my life, constantly being in the mindset of greatness, relentless in my pursuit and progressing with purpose by embracing my talents, recognizing my strengths and improving upon my weaknesses...but also in not being afraid of change; stepping forward in faith and not in fear."

     
     
     

 

 

Indeed, the 10 tracks on this sumptuous CD aurally demonstrates Fuller's artistic fearlessness. On "Decisive Steps", Fuller's sound is soaring, supple and in-the-pocket from years of channeling her horn heroes. "The first solo I transcribed was Cannonball Adderly's 'Stars Fell on Alabama' my freshman year at Spelman," Fuller says, "Cannonball has everything in his playing: soul, technique, his sound is amazing," Fuller's list of heroes also includes John Coltrane, Sarah Vaughn and Charlie Parker to name a few. Fuller's jazz rooted, genre-artistry is the result of an art filled childhood. Her musician parents, bassist Fred and singer Elthopia, she started playing classical piano at age three, the flute at age nine and the saxophone in middle school. Overall, whether you see her perform at a jazz club near you or when listening to her latest CD, you will not be let down!
