All compositions by Ramona Borthwick, except Two’s Complement co-written
with Noel Borthwick, and Dark Secrets of Three Blind Mice by Noel Borthwick.
"On this new CD, Ramona Borthwick's first, she displays a wonderful talent
for composition and imagination in the various settings she chose for the
pieces. Her playing is also creative and energetic. If this is her first
installment, we can eagerly keep track of Ramona's coming chapters.
Something nice is developing here."
"Shape shifting and extremely warm, 'A New Leaf' is a pleasure to
listen to from beginning to end, and marks a terrific and important debut
album from a fine composer and player. Most
certainly, Ramona Borthwick is someone to watch."
