Irene Jalenti

"It's rare to find an Italian singer (the outstanding Irene Jalenti) who's able to convey with such strength and intensity." [Angelo Leonardi, All About Jazz Italia]

"(She adds) an extraordinary, heartbreaking sheen to the instruments - an inspiring touch." [Bob Doerschuk, Downbeat Magazine]

"Jalenti is strong and individual and (colors with) some very striking vocals." [Donald Elfman, New York City Records]

Irene Jalenti - "Here, There and Everywhere"
A jazz homage to the music of the Beatles

The 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 12 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 has earned an Undergraduate degree in Jazz performance at Peabody Conservatory of Music in Baltimore 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.

She has performed at the White House, the Kennedy Center, and the Apollo Theater of NY. More recently she has sang with rising star of jazz Esperanza Spalding and acclaimed rapper Common. She has shared the stage with Patti Austin, Lizz Wright, Cassandra Wilson, and many other jazz artists. She has also sang with Pop artist Kelly Clarkson, Gospel artist Yolanda Adams, Latin American singer Marc Anthony, and Rap phenomenon Chance the Rapper.

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. 

The singer has a natural feeling for the stage, where her goal is not only to share the essence of a tune, but also to bring to light her individuality and her life experience, along with her always present sense of humor.
