‘Bridge To Infinity’ is the recording debut of Karina Corradini, a very talented and versatile singer who is equally skilled at straight ahead jazz, ballads, boleros and Latin American classics. Her beautiful tone, powerful voice, highly appealing jazz phrasing, ability to scat at even the fastest tempos, and warmth when caressing ballads make her one of the most promising singers on the jazz and Latin jazz scenes today.
Karina Corradini was born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She began singing professionally at age 18, leading her own jazz sextet to perform at summer beach bars and restaurants. After that summer, she sang on Corrientes Avenue in Buenos Aires, including a twice a week engagement for two years that often included a jam session with veteran musicians. Karina worked various venues (including the Teatro Coliseo, Jazz Club de la Plaza, the Thelonious Bar and Clasica y Moderna) and twice toured Southern Brazil with her group.
At the time she moved to the United States in 1999, she was among the busiest jazz singers working in Buenos Aires. Even now, when she returns to Argentina each year to visit family, she is always welcomed to perform at major jazz clubs in Buenos Aires.
“I moved to Los Angeles to learn Ella Fitzgerald’s language, and to study music in the land of jazz.” Karina attended Rhiannon’s workshop three times, seminars by Sheila Jordan, Mark Murphy and Kevin Mahogany, and studied music at Los Angeles City College and art at El Camino College. After performing with a rhythm and blues band for a year, she formed her own jazz group and has since performed at a countless number of clubs, restaurants, concerts and festivals, mostly in Southern California.
