Milan is my city and still holds me back. After classical piano studies, started as a child, I discover Jazz and I fall in love with it. Thus I begin a journey that seems to have no end. Over the years, I have been studying musicology, composition (Conservatorio G. Verdi) and arrangement (Scuola Civica di Jazz) alongside the practice of the instrument. In recent years I have been lucky enough to be able to follow the teachings and advice of great musicians such as Michele Bozza, Antonio Zambrini, Franco Cerri and Franco D'Andrea.
Martha J. began his career in 1986 as a singer and guitarist. She studies lyric and modern singing, participates in the jazz seminars of Sheila Jordan, Rachel Gould, Bob Stoloff, Patricia Williamson, Jeff Ramsey. After an interlude dedicated to pop music (which led her to participate in the Sanremo festival in 1990), since 1999 she has concentrated almost exclusively on Jazz, collaborating with numerous Italian and foreign musicians including Francesco Chebat, Attilio Zanchi, Tino Tracanna, Toni Arco , Carol Sudhalter, Giovanni Monteforte.

After having attended the Civic School of Villa Simonetta in classical double bass and having graduated from the Civic Jazz courses in Milan directed by Franco Cerri and Enrico Intra, he began an intense musical activity as a sideman in the main jazz combos of the Milan area.
"Discovered" by Franco Cerri with whom he collaborated in his school workshop, he made his debut at a very young age in the late nineties in the quintet of Bruno de Filippi with whom he carries out world-class tours.
Inspired by Al Foster and Art Blakey after studies with Masters Lucchini, Sotgiu and Prina, he continues with Victor Lewis and the Drummer's Collective in NYC. He has been playing with practically all the musicians of Milan since the 90s. He starts playing on ships, and divides his time between Milan and New York. Later, after a year in Dubai, where he is part of the Burj al Arab Trio, he returns to his homeland and creates groups under his name, records "Black Nile" with Cameron Brown Dick Oatts and Gary Versace in the USA.
