«Excellent song selection and superb delivery ... a blues-tinged feel, an earthy sensuality … creating a late night atmosphere for the torch song tales she sings. »
All About Jazz (UK)
«A fresh-sounding, flexible voice full of sex-appeal and a natural feeling for swing »
Good Times (DE)
« Her elegant vocal curves cling gracefully to the melody ... Bartilla has been blessed with that rare gift to appropriate and reinvent every tune entirely.»
Jazz Hot (FR)
Berlin-born vocalist Susanna Bartilla is an alumna of the prestigious Paris school for improvised music and has published several critically acclaimed albums of standards.
Creating an instantly recognizable and thrilling sound and feel, she infuses classic West Coast cool jazz vocals (think Peggy Lee, Anita O’Day, June Christy…) with the Parisian rive gauche charm of a Juliette Greco and the sultry allure of « Blue Angel » Marlene Dietrich, her fellow Berliner.
Susanna is that rare singer whose stage presence radiates genuine human warmth and who instantly bonds with the audience to put them under her spell. They become her loyal allies in the pursuit of musical happiness and a true emotional experience.
Her rich, vibrant voice is the perfect vehicle for her repertoire of songs where melody and lyrics conspire to tell real life stories that resonate with us all and she has the natural ability to make each song her own and to make the words come vividly alive to every listener.
Susanna has performed at many of Europe’s best jazz clubs – not least in Paris (Sunset, Petit Journal, Baiser Salé…) and Berlin (A-Trane, B-flat, ZigZag…) where she is a regular; her current project « Susanna swings The Beatles » is a spin-off from her recent album « The Look of Love (Songs of the Sixties) ».
