Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Raised to the sounds of Ella, Billie, Frank and Peggy Lee singing the Great American Songbook, Berlin born Parisian vocalist Susanna Bartilla always knew she would be a jazz singer.
Susanna got her sure sense of timing and swing from her gypsy grandfather and inherited an unconditional love for jazz music from her saxophonist-crooner father.
Her current project is a tribute to the wonderful Miss Peggy Lee that she will be introducing in clubs and at festivals during the summer and fall.
Her tribute album “I Love Lee” is due for release in the fall of 2012, including Lee’s best and also lesser known tunes as well as some standards written by Peggy Lee, featuring Alain Jean-Marie on piano and Aldo Romano on drums, as well as Sean Gourley on guitar and Claude Mouton on the double bass.
