ELENA POLETTI & BAND - The art of vocal jazz

Many are the possible ways that lead to a successful musical interplay in the language of jazz. Elena Poletti chooses to emphasize, with her mature and distinct vocal personality, her unique arrangement of every tune.

Listening to the Italian modern jazz singer performing standards and modern jazz classics with her band, established from some years in Germany, one gets completely involved in the magical interaction and the modern improvising, where the perfect interplay shows that she has found the right partners in music.

Her personal interpretation, together with her expert vocal technique, allows her incredible use of the dynamics and perfect control of the intonation. With a singular flexibility, Elena Poletti can remarkably interpret excellent jazz ballads and swing with authority on modern jazz classics. Furthermore, she can still surprise her audience with her warm latin jazz, where the compositions of Antonio Carlos Jobim find a new birth through her original resolution.

As a passionate, true Italian woman and singer, Elena Poletti successfully expresses herself in jazz, stemming from the latin intensity that comes from her cultural roots. Every tune is an accurate choice, to which she gives herself completely in every performance. As she says, “My soul is jazz!” Her voice sounds of heart and soul, reminiscent of legends like Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
