Exploring everything from Duke Ellington to Bikini Kill in her solo repertoire, this creative, versatile, and virtuoso performer hails from Seattle. In February of 2019, Anjou released Enamiĝo Reciprokataj on the Origin Records label, which received the Editor's pick on Jazz Times, with critical reviews on DownBeat Magazine, All About Jazz, and France Musique, calling her a “virtuoso”, "visionary," “highly sophisticated” and “year’s strongest debut”. The album has reached 132 on Jazz Week and is climbing.

Critical acclaim for Enamiĝo Reciprokataj:

"Enamiĝo Reciprokataj is the daring work of a 35 year old visionary." - Jazz Times, Editor's Pick

"She's happy to lay waste to the instrument when that's what's called for : "Reciprokataj IV: Olive You" begins with a display of power that would mark the summit of most players performances." -DownBeat Magazine

"This album, so highly sophisticated with an original jazz perspective, is a roaring introduction that demands attention." -Amazon
