She leads her listeners through intricate phrasing, improvisation and singular virtuosity, while making it all sound so perfectly simple.

What the critics say about Gema Corredera:
-"master vocalist" – Latin Jazz Network
"...a quietly confident and prodigious musical talent. Her velvety voice has some of the burnished golden tones of a trumpet or saxophone, but can also take on a poignant, silvery harmonic sharpness. She sings with supple, beautifully defined rhythm..." – The Miami Herald
