Jazz vocalist Letizia Gambi released new musical compositions; “Under the Moon" as a single and “Blue Monday" as a single and video on International Woman's Day, March 8th, 2019. International Women's Day has celebrated the social, economic, political and cultural achievements of women for over a century.

Born in Naples, Italy, Letizia Gambi is an international singer, songwriter and actress considered one of the most versatile and talented Jazz singers of her generation. She studied musical theater in London, acting in Milan, and graduated with a Master’s Degree in Jazz Vocal Performance at the International Jazz Academy in Milan.

In 2009, Letizia met the legendary drummer and producer Lenny White, and expressed to him her desire to fuse her roots and musical influences into a contemporary genre.

In 2012 their collaboration resulted in her debut recording, “Introducing Letizia Gambi” which was recorded in New York and included such legendary musicians as Ron Carter, Chick Corea, Gato Barbieri, Wallace Roney, Patrice Rushen, Gil Goldstein, Antonio Farao and her co-collaborator and producer, Lenny White.

In 2016 she released her second album “Blue Monday" which includes songs written by Letizia and Lenny White who produced the album and performed along with Ron Carter, Gil Goldstein, Donald Vega, Dave Stryker, Helen Sung, John Benitez, Jisoo Ok, Hector Del Curto, and Pete Levin.

The single “Under the Moon" features strings orchestrated by Gil Goldstein. The video of “Blue Monday" is composed of portraits of renowned jazz musicians and Letizia's many friends which convey a message of love, inspiration, and encouragement for a better world.

Both albums were considered for Grammy Awards as Best Vocal Jazz Album and Best Arrangements for Vocals.

Letizia’s music is a combination of her Neapolitan-Italian roots with the heritage of American Jazz. Her Mediterranean passion speaks through jazz's language of sensitivity.

She has received accolades from many respected artists, including Sting, who described her as “A Stunning vocalist!”

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
