Cinzia Spata Cinzia Spata

CINZIA SPATA is regarded as one of the finest jazz vocalists in the world, as well as an innovative composer and lyricist.

Now based in New York City, CINZIA SPATA is already a major name in the rich legacy of jazz in Italy, and this year she’s bursting onto the jazz scene in the United States and worldwide with the release of her new CD, “Into the Moment” (Koiné / Dodicilune Records.) Anticipating that she will be one of 2011’s breakout artists, this is indeed her moment.

Cinzia’s live performance calendar includes a tour with her current working unit, the CINZIA SPATA QUARTET FEATURING STEVE SWALLOW, with Adam Nussbaum and Giovanni Mazzarino.

“Into the Moment” features Cinzia leading a band of jazz all-stars (George Garzone, Bruce Barth, Ken Cervenka, Yoron Israel and Dave Clark) in an exciting mix of original and classic material, including Cinzia’s original lyrics for compositions by Mal Waldron, Bill Evans, Kenny Wheeler and Ralph Towner.

Jazz Times Magazine, in a rave review of “Into the Moment,” heralded the CD as one that “should establish her as one of the best singers on the jazz scene,” and went on to note Cinzia’s “superb command of her voice” and that “Spata improvises melodies with spontaneity and ease.”

Italy has enjoyed the good fortune of witnessing the first phase of Cinzia’s career, which has included high-profile appearances on Italian television, film, festivals, jazz clubs and concert halls, with the Umbria Jazz Festival, annual appearances at the Villa Celimontana Jazz Festival, and Rome’s top jazz club, Alexanderplatz, among her career highlights.
