Critics love MJ's new CD "Ladies Day" 
Downbeat 3-1/2 stars
MJ Territo is a veteran singer who is very much a storyteller. With a 
calm delivery and ear for poetry, she sticks to the lyrics of songs while 
giving them a gentle swing. As the set progresses, Territo’s versatility and subtle creativity grow. Her singing on “True” is beautiful,
and she is properly fetching on Dearie’s “I’m Shadowing You.” —Scott Yanow

All About Jazz: 
Vocalist MJ Territo celebrates all things women on her ambitious and 
overdue Ladies Day. What this recording proves to be
is one of the most attractive  standards sets imagined, because these standards… are not so standard. Territo… expertly guides this welcome romp through the 
less known….This is a collection of finely composed songs expertly 
delivered in a thoughtful and compelling production. Well done!
--C. Michael Bailey
