Birdland Theater is proud to announce that singer Gabrielle Stravelli will perform in concert on Tuesday and Wednesday, January 1 and 2 at 7pm and 9:45pm.

For this engagement, Ms. Stravelli will celebrate the release of her newest album, “Pick Up My Pieces: The Music of Willie Nelson.” The cd is dedicated to the music and life of the “Red Headed Stranger,” and covers the full spectrum of Nelson’s catalogue: from early hits like “Three Days” and “Blame It On The Times” to favorites from his blockbuster album of American standards like “Stardust,” and eternal classics like “Crazy” and “Nightlife.” Stravelli will weave stories from Nelson’s famously colorful personal life and storied 50-plus year career, while honoring and reimagining the music of one of America’s greatest songwriters.

Personnel for the engagement will be Joshua Richman on piano, Art Hirahara on organ, Pat O’Leary on bass, Eric Halvorson on drums and Scott Robinson on sax and trumpet.

Award-winning vocalist Gabrielle Stravelli has garnered critical acclaim and a loyal following through her rich sound, original songs and unique take on material from the Great American Songbook as well as by a varied array of contemporary artists. A trained actor, Gabrielle has a soulful sensitivity for the story in the lyric and was called “a powerhouse of individual expression” by The Village Voice. Most recently Gabrielle headlined the 2018 WBGO Jazz on the Mountain Festival, toured Southeast Asia, Pakistan and Azerbaijan as a United States Department of State “Jazz Ambassador.” She also toured the US promoting her new album, “Dream Ago,” which received 5-stars from Downbeat Magazine and raves from The Huffington Post, Jazz Weekly and the LA Jazz Scene among others. She headlined the 2016 Eleuthera Jazz Festival, a four-country US State Department-sponsored international tour in the American Music Abroad Program and premiered Rooms of Light, a new song cycle by renowned jazz pianist Fred Hersch. She has toured the US with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra premiering Wynton Marsalis’s Abyssinian: A Gospel Celebration, has been featured in 92Y’s Lyrics and Lyricists Series, at the Caramoor Festival, with the Nelson Riddle Orchestra, the Cincinnati Pops and the Santa Rosa Symphony. She holds a BFA from the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music.
