$18 online and $22 at the door/by phone reservation Join us at The Manstay for a heartfelt re-imagining of The Beatles songbook by sultry vocalist Irene Jalenti.
Baltimore-based Jazz vocalist Irene Jalenti has always admitted that much of her influence comes from the popular music of the 60s and the 70s. The Beatles were always played in her household when she was growing up, and many of the songs that she grew up learning were by the British band.
Her love for the band was so strong that in 2005 she recorded an entire album with jazz arrangements of the music of the Beatles, the project was called "Back to the Beatles" and was an undiscussed success in Italy.
After 13 years the vocalist wants to propose a similar project and share with the audience this side of her artistry.
Irene Jalenti's deep voice and unique sound are rooted in Italy. She has traveled and performed for over 15 years throughout Europe and the United States. Jalenti earned an Undergraduate degree in Jazz performance at Peabody Conservatory of Music and a Master degree in Jazz Studies at Howard University in Washington, DC. She sings with multi-award winning a cappella jazz ensemble Afro Blue.
Her eclectic personality effects the music making it unique, fresh, and never predictable. Her scat singing is infused of sounds from Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Betty Carter, and Carmen McRae, while her natural and unexpected deep tone is a reminiscence of Cassandra Wilson, Lizz Wright, and Nina Simone.
