No aguante las ganas
Hace unas semanas recibi el primer cd de Marta Gomez y no pude resistir la tentacion de conseguir todos los que hibiesen de ella. Encontre que aqui los vendian y no dude en hacerlo.
Los recibi a tiempo de una empresa que ademas de seria me parecio de gente muy divertida ( un hurra por eso), asi que ahora disfruto todos y cada uno de los temas de esta maravillosa cantante y compatriota.

Lovly, incredible, Wonderful ....you must have it
A very lovely CD, Mart has a warm, beautiful and elegant voice.

Korie Handwerger

very nice, but lacks the depth of her live performances
This CD is a good introduction to Marta Gomez. It contains a wide range of tunes, both her own compositions and covers of traditional songs from different Latin American countries. It's well worth the money, but I must admit that I wish it captured the depth of her live performances a little better.

Oldrik Scholz, Germany

It's all there.
What a debut! I got this CD after I'd got Marta's second and third one. And everything that makes the follow-ups the sensational records they are is already here in the first one: a beautiful, beautiful, beautiful voice, delicate arrangements, a nice choice of songs and a warm sound. Get this CD, you won't regret it!

This is beautiful.....must have CD
Like others, i bought this after getting 2 later releases. This is just as nice.
Marta Gomez is a very talented young artist with highly refined taste in material. Highly recommended.
I agree....time for a live album.

Bernard

Wonderful CD
Another wonderfully gentle CD from Marta Gomez. I bought her third one first, then discovered the first two. All I can say is that I'm waiting for the next one on Chesky. BUY THIS CD !!!!

Marta Gómez, una suerte conocerla.
Marta tiene una voz extremadamente dulce e interpreta la música de latino américa y especialmente de su tierra, de una manera tan íntima,que transmite mucha emoción.

This CD is NOT to be missed.
This CD is not to be missed. Marta Gomez's voice is clear as a bell, sweet, and unpretentious. Her songwriting is extraordinary. CB Baby was incredible to order from. They followed up after they sent the product to see if I had received it and if I had any problems. Great experience all around.
