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. Irene earned an Undergraduate degree in Jazz Performance at Peabody Conservatory of Music and a Master's 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 with Esperanza Spalding, Patti Austin, the Count Basie Big Band, Yolanda Adams, to name some. Irene has also performed at the Kennedy Center, the Apollo Theater of New York and even the White House for former President Barack Obama. 

"It's rare to find an Italian jazz singer (like 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}
