Greta Matassa with John Stowell, and Clipper Anderson

GretaIn the Pacific Northwest, where she built her career, Greta Matassa wins wide acclaim; four times, the readers of Earshot, the Seattle jazz magazine, have voted her the best jazz vocalist in the Northwest. 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," Wilke says, "that makes her like an instrumentalist in a jam session." And Portland's luminary jazz guitarist John Stowell returns to Traditions. As Larry Corryell has remarked about John "John Stowell plays jazz, but he doesn't use any of the clich's; he has an incredible originality. John is a master creator." Clipper Anderson is a well-respected Seattle jazz bassist.
