In the Pacific Northwest, where she built her career, Greta Matassa wins wide acclaim. Seven times the readers of Earshot, the Seattle jazz magazine, have voted her the best jazz vocalist in the Northwest. She was inducted into the Seattle Jazz Hall of Fame in 2014.
Jim Wilke, the Seattle jazz maven and host of the syndicated “Jazz After Hours” radio program, praises her versatility. “She has a fearlessness in approaching material, that makes her like an instrumentalist in a jam session.”
Bassist and producer John Clayton says “One of the best jazz singers we have to boast about these days.”
Her 40 year career has been a whirlwind of exciting opportunities and experiences. In 2016, she was featured with bassist John Clayton’s group in a centennial tribute to Ella Fitzgerald. Over the last 20 years she has recorded 11 CD's and has become established as one of the greatest jazz singers the Northwest has ever produced.
