About Gabriele

German born vocalist Gabriele Tranchina embodies a rare combination of European charm and New York style. She wisely uses her European background and language skills, performing repertoire consisting of Jazz Standards as well as Brazilian, Spanish, French and German material.

Her strong stage presence combined with her unique vocal style, a three-octave range and choice of wonderfully arranged repertoire, make her an appreciable find. Her warm and outgoing manner reach audiences of all ages and backgrounds and as Mike Cook states in his review: “ she can really put a song across.”

Her debut album “The Old Country” consists of rarely heard Jazz Standards and Brazilian tunes. As Paul Donnelly writes about the album: “Though this is her solo debut it is clearly one which suggests that she knows her direction and vocal strengths and she plays to them. I'm sure we will be hearing more in the near future.”

Tranchina's talents have earned her a place on the stages of Birdland, the Blue Note, and Lehman Center for the Performing Arts, among others. In addition to her work in the Tri-State Area, she has performed at a number of Jazz Festivals and venues in her native Germany.

Gabriele's gift for working with children led her to running a very successful Music Program for Toddlers and Preschoolers in Manhattan, in operation since 1997.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
