EmmaG_smallalbum ‘Songe’ (2005)

‘[Gilmartin has] crystalline purity with vibrato-less tone and flawless pitch.’ Leon Gettler, The Age – Green Guide

‘There is a girlish sweetness about Emma Gilmartin’s singing which is immediately engaging, without becoming cloying over the long haul. The standards are augmented by a couple of pleasant originals, and her Melbourne trio is bolstered by the exceptional trumpeter Eugene Ball on three tracks.’ – John Shand, Limelight Magazine

‘Emma’s lovely gentle voice has wide appeal … She is fast becoming one of Australia’s leading Jazz vocalists.’
– Valerie Brown, Courtyard Jazz Club

‘All up it’s an assured and likeable album.’ – Adrian Jackson, Rhythms Magazine

album ‘Tomorrow Just You Wait and See’ (2002)

‘…satisfying … heartfelt … what [Gilmartin] offers is a lovely voice, unerring accuracy of pitch and the ability to phrase lyrics in keeping with the song: all qualities fundamental to the signer’s art, but not as common as they should be.’
– Adrian Jackson, The Bulletin

‘This program of soulful songs permeates the consciousness subtly and with increasing conviction at each listening … atmospherically crafted.’
– Michael Foster, Canberra Times
“Quite simply, the collaboration between Emma Gilmartin and Tony Gould make listening to this beautifully recorded CD a delightful experience.’
– John Barns, 3MBS FM Libretto

‘Emma Gilmartin’s artistry belies her tender years … She is accompanied by the unfailingly pretty piano of Tony Gould. Together they glide through the repertoire which has some refreshing twists to it.’ – John Shand, Limelight Magazine

‘Tony Gould has emerged as a world-class talent, a formidable composer as well as a highly lyrical interpreter of other people’s works … a sensitive accompanist … [Emma] sings the songs pretty much the way the composers intended – no doubt prompting approving, albeit posthumous, nods from songsmiths like Richard Rodgers and Irving Berlin, both of whom famously loathed singers who took liberties with their works.’
– Steve Robertson, Music Australia Guide

‘Emma Gilmartin’s voice is sultry and experienced, despite her age … Tony Gould will forgive me for dwelling on his singing partner. We expect something close to perfection from him, and he delivers it; but Gilmartin is a real find.’
– Andrew Ford, Australian Financial Review

‘well worth the listen … the voice of Emma Gilmartin – crystal clear in tone and clarity, and with a quality that captures the stillness of the moment … is surrounded by the perfection of Tony Gould’s exquisite arrangements and pianistic abilities … a wonderful debut CD and a piece of work to be proud of … recording quality is also excellent.’ – Caroline Lynn-Bayne, MCA Music Forum

‘seductive vocals … tender, hypnotic piano … a delightful session of restful jazz … fine offerings … 4 out of 5 stars.’
– Chris Copas, The Star

‘Gilmartin refurbishes a song through a crystalline purity of vibrato-less tone and flawless pitch. Indeed, her pitch is so perfect that it is almost unsettling … Gould’s legato phrasing, melodic variation and ornamentation, and his emotional impact provide an ideal accompaniment that colours the voice. Listening to their dialogue is part of the treat. *** 1/2 stars.’
– Leon Gettler, The Age – Green Guide
