Joanie Pallatto

"A stirring and special voice.”
   RICK KOGAN, The Chicago Tribune

"For Joanie Pallatto, scatting is as natural as talking and a logical extension of her interpretations of lyrics." 

SCOTT YANOW, Jazz Inside Magazine

"Trying to channel Pallatto is like attempting to bottle a cyclone.  It's best to just let her run wild...”


"She has a voice that is forever young, and enchanting."


"She sings voluptuously, her voice all but overflowing the bounds of her music!”
NEIL TESSER, author, The PLAYBOY Guide to Jazz (Plume)

"... impressively in control ... Pallatto stands out in an overcrowded field"
LLOYD SACHS, The Chicago Sun-Times


"An airiness of spirit and a certain twinkle in the eye that pulls everything together and draws a listener in."
CHRIS HEIM, WBEZ 91.5 FM (Chicago Public Radio)

"Downright iconoclastic."
JOHN MCDONOUGH, DownBeat Magazine
