Pas de Deux

MARTHA J., voice
Clessidra Records, 2014

“If you only use two instruments – versatile ones like piano and vocals – to obtain level results, you need to rely completely on a perfect performance, in search of balance and detail. This it the  operation that Martha and Francesco successfully complete on this record. It doesn’t matter if it’s jazz, blues, even pop: the result is rich in talent, and you can’t ask for more.”
Fabio Alcini, “TraKs”

“This is an album without veils and without deception, which reveals from the first track its real essence, that is, the feeling between a piano and a voice, between a vocalist and a pianist. A jazz song steeped in blues, refined, intense , supported by a technically flawless pianism, emotionally deep and poignant, ready to underline the changes of atmosphere that the luminous and extended vocality of Martha instill in the performance.”
