Vocalist Gabriele Tranchina embodies a rare combination of European charm and New York style. Having left her native Germany in 1988, the source for her gracious manner of performance, Tranchina has absorbed all that her adopted land has to offer. Her broad repertoire from the popular songbook and the blues to samba and a variety of Latin forms is the veritable gumbo that constitutes American jazz. She truly brings an international perspective to her songs: no wonder "Old Country," the title track of her new CD, contains such great insight. Tranchina's talents have earned her a place on the stages of Birdland, the Blue Note, Metronome, the New Yorker Club, the Lehman Center for the Performing Arts, and the National Academy Museum, among others. For a time, she hosted the Squire's popular open mic night. Her versatility with languages - she is tri-lingual and sings in English, German and French as well as Portuguese, Italian, and Spanish - has made her an asset to tour operators and hotels. She has performed for special events at New York's Marriott Marquis, Rockefeller Center's Sea Grill, and on Spirit Cruises.
