(C) Jeaneen Lund Gretchen Parlato
Fast-rising US singing star Parlato made a dramatic entry to the upper echelons of jazz vocalists when she won the prestigous 2004 Thelonious Monk Jazz Vocal Award. Possessing a honeyed voice coupled with quicksilver technique, she matches the sweetness of her sound with music of depth and beauty.
