Vanessa Racci Italian American / American Standards Jazz Band



Vanessa Racci grew up in an Italian American household with her grandfather living in the basement apartment and they were inseparable! While she has been performing American jazz standards for years, it was this relationship that led her to launch her album, Italiana Fresca. Her music reinvents the Italian American classics Grandpa Hank taught her with modern jazz arrangements to keep the music alive for future generations. You'll hear songs like Ce La Luna Mezzo Mare, Al Di La, Guaglione and O Sole Mio refreshed in a totally new way with rhythms ranging from up tempo swing to rhumba to bolero. She has been dubbed the "Mob hits compilation for hipsters." :)

If you're not into Italian music, that's okay! Since her band originally formed to perform American jazz Standards, they also have a vast repertoire of standards and can perform shows either exclusively American jazz or a combination of American and Italian. Whatever suits your event!

    Additional Info:

    The quote provided assumes you'll be hiring the trio + me (bass, drums, piano and vocals) and is up to 1 hour of travel. Once we go beyond 1 hour, we'll have to add for travel fees / flight depending on how far away the gig is. It also assumes that I will bring my own high quality PA system; 12in speakers and 16 channel mixer + sound guy. If you have a bigger budget and want to add horns, we can add sax and trumpet for an additional $300 per musician.

    If your event cannot afford the full band or trio, I also perform at events with background tracks from album. This is only for the Italian American jazz gigs.
