With Chucho Valdes at Town Hall NYC

Three times Grammy nominated, international vocal powerhouse Roberta Gambarini burst in the world’s jazz scene in 1998 , when she became one of the runner-ups in the Thelonious Monk Jazz Vocal Competition at the Smithsonian Auditorium in Washjngton, D.C.
Since then she has started a decades-spanning, stellar career that has won her the love of audiences in the US and all over the world performing in the most prestigious venues , from
Carnegie Hall and the Hollywood Bowl to Jazz Festivals such as Monterey and Newport, and NYC’s Blue Note Jazz Club. She has performed, recorded and toured extensively with most of the greatest Masters of Jazz, among them: James Moody, Roy Hargrove, Hank Jones, Herbie Hancock, Dave Brubeck, and the Dizzy Gillespie All Stars Big Band.










Her work has been rewarded with multiple prizes , such as three Grammy nominations (two as Jazz Vocal Album of the Year for her albums Easy to Love and So in Love and one for her work on the iconic Roy Hargrove Big Band album ‘Emergence’), the French National Jazz Academy vocal album of the year prize for her album You are There in duo with Jazz Giant and former Ella Fitzgerald’s  pianist Hank Jones, and many more. 
Roberta keeps touring and recording expanding her repertoire and from performing with Cuban Jazz great Paquito D’Rivera new exciting collaborations with jazz pianist Cyrus Chestnut and Nuevo Tango Master Pablo Ziegler. Roberta has been recently awarded with the highest honor reserved to artists by the French ministry of Culture: the title of ‘Chevalier sea Arts ed des Lettres’.

“. . . a singer whom musicians have long known as one of the greats . . . Breathtaking! ”
