Patrizia...The Sultry Lady Of Jazz Patrizia...The Sultry Lady Of Jazz

The Lady presents some of the best Jazz and Blues Vocals around, in the style of Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald. Known for her heartfelt, sultry renditions of Jazz and Blues Standards,as well as her stylish upbeat interpretations of Swing, Bebop, and Latin Jazz. Give her any type of Composition and she will surely make it her own.

Patrizia was nicknamed the Sultry Lady of Jazz during one of her performances, because of her naturally pure way of creating strong emotions in her listeners. Listening to her sing is addictive, because she sings with so many ranges of emotion, which include romance, lust, passion, melancholy, wistfulness, anticipation, joy, hope, and sadness, holding each note until it has served her purpose as she gently eases into the next. Her musical interpretations are with such natural phrasing, clear articulation, mellow tones, superb pitch and so much feeling she makes each composition come alive. Telling the story as if she were the composer. She believes that music is one's own experience, thoughts, and wisdom. If you don't live it in your interpretation, you can't express it, nor can you tell an effective story.

A Denver, Colorado native, daughter of a famous Surgeon and current San Diego resident, she grew up with a love for all kinds of Music. She fondly remembers, as a small child, her Mother and Father requiring her and her siblings to listen, understand, and recognize all types of Music and their instrumentation. One of her fondest memories, is that of being held by her dad, as he blew his Alto Sax. “Music was always playing“, she recalls, eating dinner to Classical Music and Opera (especially Italian), doing her homework and reading assignments while listening to Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald, June Christy, Chris Connor, Billie Holiday, Anita O’Day, Charlie Parker, Sonny Stitt, John Coltrane, Thelonius Monk, Miles Davis , Herbie Mann, JJ Johnson, Art Pepper, George Shearing and Kenny Burrell to name but a few.

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.
