I Wanna Be Loved
(Resonance Records)

Seattle-based vocalist Greta Matassa has been a dues-paying jazz singer since she was 17 years old. Her latest recording, I Wanna Be Loved, is a portrait of the artist at the top of her game. She belts on the swing tunes and bring just the right amount of pathos to a tender ballad, the balance of which is the basis for this recording. Matassa’s vocal talents are matched by outstanding arrangements by pianist Tamir Handleman, brought to life by great musicianship from Bruce Forman on guitar, Clipper Anderson on bass, and Bob Leatherbarrow on drums, among many others. This is the work of a full-fledged jazz singer that simply will not disappoint.
