The jazz critic for the Sydney Monring Herald, John Shand wrote a four star review of Truman's CD "Sdreamings" and had this ti say about her:- "Think about the spread of singing say, from Robert Johnson to Chinese Opera.

Jo Truman covers such a breadth of approaches and then some. She can also sound like a smashing crystal, a fountain playing or flock of birds. The music of birds is an inevitable inspiration for improvisors and composers, andTruman's ability to mimic is especially breathtaking and exhilerating.Her virtuosity is just a means to en end, which is so enthralling that her exceptional tonal control and articulation, not to mention her range, could almost escape notice. Much of the music made is just with her voice.

Sometimes it is treated with electronics by collaborators of great flair. always it is fresh." Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
