JAZZIZ MAGAZINE: Italian vocalist Sissy Castrogiovanni sparked in her Panama Jazz Festival debut performance. 

"Vivacious Sicilian chanteuse Sissy Castrogiovanni impressed an SRO audience with her mastery [..] Castrogiovanni floated effortlessly through octave-jumping scatting and vocalese forays. Her version of Chopin’s majestic Nocturne in Eb Major, demonstrated the singer’s emotional range and precise sense of pitch"
