Selected quotes:

~ “This is an amazing ensemble! […] Fascinating band and especially moving program. Julia Feldman is a very special vocalist. To all contemporary jazz lovers- recommended!” (habama.co.il)

~ “Vocalist Julia Feldman […] deserves to be far better known outside Israel. […] Words Are Worlds ” a tribute album to Billie Holiday ” is fittingly titled, as Julia and her trio partners […] inhabit the compositions as much as perform them, creating intriguing sound-worlds […] The album is a low-key masterpiece, three magnificent musicians melding voice and instruments, creating beautiful, intimately passionate music.” (Mike Gerber, journalist and music critic, from the book “Jazz Jews”, UK)

~ “Julia had entered the Israeli jazz elite while still studying in the Jerusalem Academy. She is one of the most in demand musicians in Israel. She inspires musicians and jazz lovers with her voice, great musicality, exceptional band leading and unique musical concepts. Julia doesn’t imitate […], but looks for her own way. […] Julia Feldman Quartet`s concert on the […] International Jazz Globus Festival was an outstanding event.” (Vladimir Mak, www.jazz.ru, Russia)

~ “… The Cinemateque-2 hall was packed […] people were even sitting on the stairs. [….] Julia gave her soul to the audience. […] She is always looking for new ways to interpret songs (check out her Billie Holiday tribute album). My Man`s Gone Now from “Porgy and Bess” is an excellent example. […] Outstanding show.” (Asher Kesher, nana.co.il, Israel, on Julia`s concert at the Tel Aviv International Jazz Festival)

~ “Of course, I couldn't miss the festival`s closing event. […] Julia Feldman had already begun singing. And she sang wonderfully, effortlessly, naturally and […] tenderly. Her voice enriched the fine compositions and the tasteful interpretations.” (Michael Kull, “Jazz-Qvadrat”, Russia)

~ “Compared to the plethora of standard, boring homages to jazz greats, Julia Feldman's homage to Billie Holiday is an extraordinary work that tries to meet the spirit of the original, not to imitate it. “It's really a fantasy,” says Feldman. “If we were to take Holiday's amazing development and roll it forward in time, what would happen?” Feldman […] is worthy of praise for her courageous approach and her success in diving into Holiday's deepest pain.” (From “Outstanding recent Jerusalem jazz albums” by Ben Shalev, “Haaretz”)

~ “Feldman is a unique vocalist, making her own style with her ensemble”. (Jerusalem Cultural Foundation)

~ “Words Are Worlds”, the debut release by Israeli vocalist Julia Feldman, is an inspired tribute, […] a fresh and open-minded perspective to the Holiday legacy. The ensemble shines […], Feldman's fragile, expressive vocal soars. […] An impressive tribute […], wisely retains the elegance and the idiosyncratic attitude that was so identified with Holiday.” (Eyal Hareuveni, “All About Jazz”)

~ “We`ve classified Julia Feldman as a jazz/blues artist, but that would be too superficial. (QUBE.CO.IL”)

~ “Who have already been to concerts of the jazz vocalist Julia Feldman, is probably craving for the release of her new fabulous cd.” (”Kol Ha-Zman”)

~ “The Secret Door” (work in process) ~ "Words are Worlds (a Tribute to Billie Holiday)" (2006, Hed Arzi) ~ "Jazz in Jerusalem: the birth of the local standard" (Compilation, 2006, "New Perspectives Records"/The Eight`s Note)
