A rare commodity in jazz is a singer who captivates both the general public and the jazz musician himself. A diligent student of the works of Billie Holiday, Chet Baker, and Johnny Hartman, Miss Cavassa is a delightful songstress in her own right and captivating to say the least. Having recently returned to the Bay Area after time in France, Gabrielle has brought back with her that ineffable je ne sais quoi, evidence of which can be found in her unhurried phrasing and the warm easiness of her tone. But don't be fooled by her purr -- the cat can swing.
