“Listening to the jazz singer Gabrielle Stravelli is like imbibing a potent cocktail whose flavor changes as you drain the glass….she dipped and swooped, twirling notes and phrases with a confidence and playfulness that recalled Ella Fitzgerald in her prime…” –The New York Times
The Gabrielle Stravelli Trio (Gabrielle Stravelli vocals, Michael Kanan piano, Pat O’Leary bass) celebrates the release of their debut album “Beautiful Moons Ago.” With a hard swinging style rooted in jazz tradition coupled with Stravelli’s totally modern lyric interpretations, the group brings the American Songbook to life. “Beautiful Moons Ago” features 12 rarely heard gems from jazz and The American Songbook by well-known writers like Jule Styne and Cy Coleman as well as lesser-known writers like Doris Fisher and Clara Edwards. The album was recorded at the legendary Rudy Van Gelder Studio.
Over twelve years of collaborating, the trio has developed a musical connection that allows for great spontaneity in their performances and reflects their true joy in making music together. The American Songbook is no museum piece for this group, but a living, breathing testament to the power of a beautiful melody and lyrics that allow us to find our shared truths.

Gabrielle Stravelli, whose star has risen over the last half decade, has the great good fortune of two sidemen completely in sync with her style and persona…the melodic Michael Kanan on piano and Pat O’Leary on bass were a perfect match for the singer’s own musicianship and upbeat delivery.” New York City Jazz Record
