  She grew up in a family of jazz musicians, studied classical piano and flute, and, like her older sister, eventually chose jazz as her profession. She introduces tomorrow night's lineup, and outlines the different requirements of touring with her own project and touring as featured saxophonist in pop artist Beyonce's ensemble. Angelic Warrior is her fourth solo album. It features performances by her sister, pianist Shamie Royston, and her brother-in-law, drummer Rudy Royston.
