Baptist is a "true seductress on the black and white keys of a wing" (WDR Radio), a phenomenon on which Grammy winner Maria tailor expresses itself appreciatively: "Baptists music is a present, filled by the creativity, strength, emotions, size and warmth which is reflected in her whole life.” Between her hometown Berlin and the second native country New York pendulous pianist, composer and conductor counts without doubt to the most amusing artists of the modern jazz. And not only since her ECHO nomination. The recording "Self portrait" became highly cheered from the criticism;„ I have simply fallen in love with this selfportrait. In a stream of love and sadness, longing and fragility, to her pieces arises“ (aboutjazz). Baptist inspires with her „energetic play“ (piano news), her „excellent technology and her rich range of sounds“ (KN) the audience. Immediately in the first week the album climbed in the top 10 the jpc piano jazz charts and was able to do itself as the only new release of an Independently label (Maria Baptist Music) in which top 20 of the charts place.
