Roberta Gambarini was born in Torino, Italy, into a family where jazz was much loved and appreciated. She began listening to this music as a child and started taking clarinet lessons when she was twelve years old. By the time she was 17, she had begun singing and performing in jazz clubs around Northern Italy. At the age of 18, she decided to move to Milan to pursue a career as a jazz singer.
Soon after her move to Milan, still in her teens, Roberta took third place in a national jazz radio competition on TV, leading to performance opportunities at jazz festivals throughout Italy. She has performed in Jazz broadcasts on the Italian radio and TV channels and recorded since 1986 both under her own name and as a guest vocalist. In 1997, she worked with French Hammond organ player Emmanuel Bex, touring jazz clubs throughout Italy....
This CD [You Are There ~~ Roberta Gambarini & Hank Jones - 2008] promises to be one of the better vocal releases of 2008. --Suzanne Lorge, All About Jazz.
