Description

Vocalist and songwriter Gabrielle Stravelli combines a hard-swinging style with totally modern lyric interpretations- breathing new life into every song with a contagious joy and thrilling spontaneity. “Listening to the jazz singer Gabrielle Stravelli is like imbibing a potent cocktail whose flavor changes as you drain the glass….she dipped and swooped, twirling notes and phrases with a confidence and playfulness that recalled Ella Fitzgerald in her prime…” -The New York Times
 
For her June residency at Birdland Gabrielle will be joined by bassist Pat O'Leary and a lineup of New York's finest pianists. Her group will share classic standards, rarely heard gems from the American Songbook and tracks from her new album "Beautiful Moons Ago."
 

Gabrielle Stravelli has collaborated with world-renowned jazz pianist Fred Hersch, three times, premiering his song cycle "Rooms of Light", filming an online masterclass for openstudio.com and most recently recording a new song cycle for release next year. She toured the U.S. premiering "Abyssinian" with Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra and as a U.S. State Department "Jazz Ambassador" since 2015, she has performed and taught throughout Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Southeast Asia and South America.

She regularly leads her quartet in performances at the country's finest jazz clubs & performing arts centers and has headlined domestic & international jazz festivals including the 2023 Delaware Water Gap COTA Festival, 2023 Cayman Arts Festival, 2024, 2021 & 2018 WBGO Jazz on the Mountain Festival, 2019 Providencia Jazz Festival in Chile and the 2016 Eleuthera Jazz Festival, Bahamas.
