               Gabrielle Stravelli (Jazz)     (formerly Alexis Cole Quintet)

Alexis Cole has been called to active duty by serving our country as the vocalist with the West Point Band's Jazz Knights. We have found a show-stopping replacement for her, another female jazz vocalist in the American Songbook tradition – Gabrielle Stravelli.

Award-winning vocalist Stravelli has garnered critical acclaim and a loyal following through her original songs and her unique take on material from the New American Songbook as well as classic standards by artists as varied as Pink Floyd and Duke Ellington, Dolly Parton and Johnny Mercer. She has won rave reviews for her current performances of sold-out shows at New York City’s Metropolitan Room. “As she dipped and swooped, twirling notes and phrases with a confidence and playfulness that recalled Ella Fitzgerald in her prime, Mr. Stravelli began interpreting lyrics with a ferocity that her vocal pyrotechnics accentuated...” - Stephen Holden, New York Times

Stravelli toured the US with Wynton Marsalis in 2013 and sang with him in the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra performing Marsalis's Abyssinian: A Gospel Celebration. A trained actor, Gabrielle has a soulful sensitivity for storyline in song and was called “a powerhouse of individual expression” by David Finkle of the Village Voice. She has appeared as a soloist with the Nelson Riddle Orchestra and the Cincinnati Pops, sang the role of Anita in West Side Story with the Kentucky Symphony Orchestra, and performed the role of Jeannie in the European tour of HAIR. She sings with a “forceful, emotional presence and a versatile, well-shaded voice,” says Adam Feldman of Time Out New York, and Peter Haas of Cabaret Scenes, describes her voice as “clear and clean, expressive, supple, with unforced power.”
