Amina Figarova is a globe-trotting, Rotterdam-based composer/pianist/bandleader with more than a dozen recordings to her credit. With her husband, Bart Platteau, Figarova arranges and plays artful and heartfelt changes on the urbane, bluesy lyricism originally developed by the likes of Miles Davis, Horace Silver, Bill Evans, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, et al. Amina made her recording debut with Attraction in 1994, and was accepted into the prestigious Thelonious Monk Jazz Colony in Aspen, Colorado in 1998. Her CD Sketches, was described as “a beautiful mingling of her talents, fleshed out through a blend of inviting grooving and ornate runs.”
