Gretchen Parlato at Lawrence Memorial Chapel
Gretchen Parlato's 2009 sophomore breakthrough, "In a Dream", signaled the arrival of an incredibly inventive modern jazz singer. Her follow-up, "The Lost and Found", demonstrates that she has staying power. "In a Dream" garnered international acclaim with "Billboard" magazine hailing it as "the most alluring jazz vocal album of 2009." It also made it onto the top year-end polls for Jazz Times, the Boston Globe, the Village Voice and NPR. "The Lost and Found" shows immediate weight and intensity, exposing a greater dynamic range. "I feel like I stepped out of my own way and allowed myself to be more revealing and vulnerable through the music," reflects Parlato.
"She enters the music, becoming part of the band, improvising in melody and rhythm, prying open sweet spots in the songs ... it's evident that she's an extraordinary singer." -The New York Times
