Martha J.

I started my career in Milan (Italy) and in 1990 I took part in Sanremo Music Festival (that is the most important festival in Italy dedicated to Italian pop music). After that, I recorded 2 CDs and I take part in many radio and TV shows. I had concerts in Italy and abroad.

From 1999, I turned almost exclusively to jazz music and since then I have been playing with many famous musicians in jazz clubs, festivals and events in Italy and abroad.

In 2005, I was invited to sing in american saxophinist Carol Sudhalter's new CD: Shades of Carol.

In 2008 I published two CDs dedicated to jazz standards: 'That's it' and 'No one but you'....

“Martha J., an explosion of freshness, of vocal skill and great professionalism, together with a talent that no school can teach, in brief, a great, wonderful vocalist. This CD is a real revelation and its excellent level is not accidental, but... stop reading this review and hurry to buy it! Moreover, this CD is recorded much better than most so called audiophile recordings: all instruments are perfectly outlined, with astounding tridimensionality, my compliments to the sound engineer, it makes you want to buy a sound system that is up to the mark! “ Giuseppe Candiano - www.tgcom.it

“No one but you” (with Martha J., vocals, and Francesco Chebat, piano): there is no doubt that this CD also deserves a first class rating and even the song “Sophisticated Lady” alone makes it worth buying it. Giuseppe Candiano - www.tgcom.it

The title of this CD expresses well what Martha J. is now: an experienced and accomplished vocalist, with a voice full of colors and shades, sure of her talent and of her style, thanks also to the musicians she came across (and that she does not forget to thank!), especially Francesco Chebat, with whom she achieved a deep and intense musical feeling. (...) all these songs are remade with respect but with a personal style, and at the same time they have an up to date and fresh feeling; but the most surprising thing is the beginning of the CD, Almost Like Being in Love, where Martha lively leaps over a smooth and rustling background of brushes, with the other musicians that burst in with energy after the first theme... a perfect start! The CD is really all very good and I can listen to it over and over ... Lalla, il Tonnuto
