Listening to the jazz singer Gabrielle Stravelli is like imbibing a potent cocktail whose flavor changes as you drain the glass...As she dipped and swooped, twirling notes and phrases with a confidence and playfulness that recalled Ella Fitzgerald in her prime, Ms. Stravelli began interpreting lyrics with a ferocity that her vocal pyrotechnics accentuated...
— Stephen Holden, The New York Times
Gabrielle Stravelli raised our spirits in the face of the deluge outside with “Joy Spring” and “On a Clear Day” (which it wasn’t), as well as an ingenious blending of the vamp to “So What” and the melody to “Oh Boy” (Miles Davis meets Buddy Holly) that was so seamless it didn’t seem right to call it a mash-up.
— Will Friedwald, Wall Street Journal
Go ahead, name a more exciting chanteuse who’s hit the town with all engines firing in the last 5 or 10 years. When this one belts, traffic stops across town. She may be little but the effect couldn’t be bigger as she gives songs from myriad genres the once-over. You think Haley or Lauren on American Idol have what it takes? This gal has more, and takes it right before your very eyes.
— David Finkle, Village Voice
