If you know anything about Gabrielle Stravelli's talent, then it won't shock you to realize that she was singing as a soloist with orchestras - when she was 15!  Her glorious path in Jazz has been so beautiful to behold.  Many have taken notice of the grace and growth that she has demonstrated - including the esteemed pianist, Fred Hersch.  And Wynton Marsalis - with whom she toured.  

This is an award-winning vocalist, Beloveds.  A composer of joyful message - and an interpreter of not only the Great American songbook.  But Gabrielle has also tackled the repertoire of artists as diverse as Duke Ellington and Pink Floyd :)  Did I tell you who has taken notice of this authentic and effortless Goddess?  Two names (see above!) - but there is way more.  The U.S. State Department issued a challenge to American bands - hundreds responded - but only ten were chosen to represent the country around the world.  To foster cultural diplomacy via music.  Have any guesses as to who was involved?  Gabrielle's group.  When the opportunity presented itself, she was conducting workshops and master classes by day - and performing at night.  And there's more - Gabrielle has been recognized by the Montreaux Jazz Festival Vocal Competition, the Jazzmobile Competition of Harlem, and has utlized her talents for ACTING, too.  As the voice of Anita in "West Side Story" and the role of Jeannie in the European revival of "Hair."  

As headliner of a popular Jazz brunch in Soho - and as invited participant with symphonies from Coast to Coast - this amazing powerhouse has earned the praise that spills over at her website.  What yours truly has said about our guest was also included in her press release.  Talk about an honor!  Let's welcome back Gabrielle on 3/15.  Our episode starts at two p.m. Eastern - Golden Lady at four!
