Vanessa Tagliabue Yorke is a very creative jazz singer, composer, arranger of her own discographic projects and an experimenter of sound languages. Her dramatic intensity and vocal ductility have allowed her to deal with extremely different repertoires collaborating with the most important Italian musicians.
Sculptor and painter, graduated with honors both in the New Academy of Fine Arts in Milan and the Lucio Campiani Conservatory of Mantua, she is a singer specialized in the repertoire of classical jazz, with a particular profound knowledge of the ancient forms of jazz combined with an authentic taste for research and experimental attitude that make her an internationally active artist.
In March 2012 she is the only foreigner guest at the exclusive “A tribute to Bix” Festival, Wisconsin (USA), performing lot of concerts with Dalton Ridenhour (piano, New York) and with Andy Schumm (cornet, Chicago). From this collaboration was born the “Racine Connection” album published by the American label Rivermont Records in 2012 produced by Bryan Wright.
In April 2012 Vanessa started an intense collaboration with Mauro Ottolini’s Sousaphonix Orchestra, recording four albums for Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome: “Bix Factor” in 2012, “Musica per una società senza pensieri Vol. 1”, “Musica per una società senza pensieri Vol.2” in 2015 and “Buster Kluster” for Azzurra Music 2016.
