Insight My journey as a jazz vocalist has meant overcoming my fears and getting out of my comfort zone. Developing a Latin and World influenced sound has meant diving deep and developing a personal connection to it all. I will share the good, the bad and the ugly.
Lyrics A vocalist is a storyteller. I’m going to give you the lyrics and translations so you can understand the song on a deeper level.
Photos Recording sessions, CD releases and live gigs all generate amazing images… so I can share with you the “visuals” of Latin and World influenced vocal jazz in the making.
The highest resolution digital files that exist, so you can hear the various percussion instruments and world and Latin influences more clearly. No streaming service you pay for is anywhere close to this level of sound quality. If you know what 4K television is... these sound files are the audio equivalent of that!

What Press/Musicians and Fans are Saying...
“Tranchina’s lithe, clear; elegant singing evokes Sade, Flora Purim, Corinne Drewery (Swing Out Sister), and that “Girl From Ipanema,” Astrud Gilberto. ...—She uses her voice a bit like an instrument but never at the expense of the song. This set will fly you ‘round the world in a happy daze.”
- Mark Keresman Icon Magazine
“Gabriele Tranchina, whose third release, Of Sailing Ships and the Stars in Your Eyes, demonstrates the singer's firm grasp across styles, genres, and, yes, languages. The singer's voice is singular and well-balanced, capable of low purrs and assertive exuberance. Refined and fine is Of Sailing Ships and the Stars in Your Eyes.”
- Michael Bailey – All about jazz
“ Tranchina can swing with the vivacity of Anita O’Day and echo the fragility of Astrud Gilberto on ballads, but there is nothing derivative in her kaleidoscopic flourishes, embracing chants, rap, spoken passages and vocalese.”
- Christopher Loudon, JazzTimes
“…It is clear from Tranchina’s performance that she is a vocalist of the highest order. Her style is not conventional. ...When she interprets the narrative of a song and gets in to character, she has few peers.”
- Raul da Gama, LatinJazz.net
“Tranchina is a vocalist with a unique sound. There is the fragility of Stacey Kent and Astrud Gilberto but with the tonal quality of Nadia Basurto”
- Ian Lomax, Jazz Journal
“With her charismatic charms, Gabriele reaches out to a wide variety of audiences. One can’t help but be drawn into her world. Her music transcends categories and opens up new territory for everyone’s ears. Ms. Tranchina takes us on a colorful journey. She entices us into moods and atmospheres that only music can capture. She woos us to join her on a journey to places we dream about and lands we long to know.”
- Jazz Times

- Mark Murphy, Jazz Vocalist and Mentor “
