“Martha J. is not only a marvelous singer with a lovely instrument and delivery, but also a
substantial song lyricist, writing with grace and subtle eloquence. She found a perfect collaborator
in pianist and composer Francesco Chebat... “ - Mark Stevens, Piano and All That Jazz Radio

"... an extraordinary sensibility, a perfect control of the voice that gives great emotions (...) one of
the most gifted and refined vocalists of our jazz/folk/fusion scene." - Gianni Zuretti, L'isola che non
c'era

“…such lightness in singing the most complex harmonies. The tone of her voice fascinates - each
phrase and tone is
graded to a perfection and enabled us to understand contemporary jazz music... She was above all
the star of The Sixth
International Festival and a lady whose subtle performance, expressive behaviour on the stage will
be long
remembered.” Dr. Sc. Nino Zubčević, Croatian Association for Science, Arts and Culture.

"...an explosion of freshness, of vocal skill and great professionalism, together with a talent that no
school can teach..." G. Candiano - TG com

"... a balladeuse with deep sensibility, confidential phrasing, a smooth feeling and a natural
elegance." Bruno Schiozzi, Musica Jazz

"Martha J. is a natural in classic jazz fittings with a smooth melodic mannerism reminiscent of
Edith Piaf and the vivacious swing-jazz incisions of Jane Monheit..." - JazzTimes

"Sheer loveliness, Italian-born vocalist/goddess Martha J. has the dulcet pitch of Petula Clark, the
bedroomy-eye timbres of Lena Horne, and the exquisite nuances reminiscent of Ella Fitzgerald." -
Susan Frances, JazzReview.com
