Reviews: When it comes to Greta, it's difficult for me to find the proper accolade...Audiences warm up to her right away. She utilizes top-notch players. She has the reputation that will bring in people who might not ordinarily come to jazz clubs -The Seattle Times

"Matassa's performance was a marvel of virtuosity." -Los Angeles Times

After only a few tracks into my first listen of Matassa's latest, numerous thoughts entered my mind: wow, this swings hard; tight arrangements; her scatting on the spirited opener "Broadway" is as confident, nimble and energetic as Ella's; her phrasing is hip like Nancy Wilson; Matassa's got her own unique style... -Earshot Jazz

"A natural crowd-pleaser" -All About Jazz magazine

"A vocal chameleon herself, Matassa can sound husky or crisp, ebullient or wailing, girlish or jaded. She recalls Billie Holiday in one phrase, Cleo Laine in the next. Breathy at the top of her range, she also packs a warbling vibrato." -Seattle Times
