Welcome to the homepage of Elise Wood

The Star Ledger "With Elise’s flute sound and the way Curtis (Lundy) works from the bass bottom, I … let them surround me with the sound…" John Hicks, Zan Stewart

The Washington Post "…best revealed with Hicks’ well-known ballad, "Naima’s Love Song" which fully integrates the sound of the trio, flute and string section creating a lovely weave of colors and texture and heartfelt emotion. Mike Joyce

The Washington Post "Hicks eloquently collaborating with flutist Elise Wood, who was largely responsible for a haunting alto flute reprise of Hoagy Carmichael’s "Skylark"

Amsterdam News "Wood overwhelmed the audience with her rendition of Billy Strayhorn’s Star-Crossed Lovers and (Bobby) Watson’s extraordinary tendering of the classic " Soul Eyes" provided one of the great performance highlights of the festival". Clarence Atkins
