Ken Keuffel of the Arizona Daily Star describes Rowe as "that rare ‘triple threat' of pianist, composer-arranger and teacher." Her most recent CD, "Wishing Well" (PKO Records) with special guest Ingrid Jensen, was praised as "a gem in every respect, revealing much to savor on every track" Ken Franckling of Jazz Time.
Rowe has performed at jazz clubs, festivals and concert halls around the world. She is in great demand as a sideman, having performed with a variety of artists including Kenny Wheeler, Ingrid Jensen, John Clayton and Tom Harrell, among others. Her compositions and arrangements have been performed and recorded by jazz ensembles and orchestras, including the Village Vanguard Orchestra, Berlin Radio Jazz and BBC Jazz Orchestra.
