New songstress Mari Koga has chosen Afro-Latin jazz as the vehicle from which to launch a promising musical career and engaging "Perfect Blue", offering challenging new arrangements, dynamic compositions and a solid vocal performance, may well be the strong foundation from which to begin.      

 

- Edward Blanco, All About Jazz - USA  April  2015

Mari Koga logra su cometido por medio de album con diferentes aristas: energico e intimo en toda su concepcion, con la suficiente energia para mandarnos a bailar o a reflexionar sobre lo bello que es la musica.

 

- DJ El Chino, Solar Latin Club - Columbia  April  2015

Her vocals are dynamic, soaring and so powerful you would think she was born in Havana... PERFECT BLUE is an excellent that belongs on any Japanese jazz lover's and any Latin music lover's shelf. But of course, it's unlokely to stay on the shelf for long, it's more likely stay in the player!

 

- Michael Pronco, Jazz In Japan - Japan  May  2015

NY ラテンジャズを活性化する歌姫の現在形。刮目したいのがサルサにとけ込んだ彼女のパフォーマンスの素晴らしさ。特に日本語の詞のリズムをメロディーに融合させるセンスと技量は、サルサを生んだNYラテン界育ちならではとおもわせる。
