Gretchen Parlato

The face of a new generation of vocalists who are challenging our perceptions." Reuben Jackson: "It´s the power of nuance... like Billie Holiday or even Miles Davis... 

Gretchen has that sublime power, where it´s like being knocked over with a muted trumpet." Steve Greenlee: "Parlato softly moans some lyrics, stretches out syllables for two and three bars, and adds wordless vocals that are more like sax solos than scat."
Now playing Weak From her In A Drea cd.  "WEAK"
