About Gretchen Parlato

Vocalist Gretchen Parlato is a forward-thinking performer known for her languid, intimate style and consummate control. She often melds her varied musical influences into a modern brand of creative contemporary jazz. Her 2005 self-titled debut showcased her readings of tunes by Hoagy Carmichael, Björk, Antonio Carlos Jobim, and Wayne Shorter. 2009's In a Dream featured production and arranging collaborations with Robert Glasper. She produced 2011's eclectic The Lost and Found, taking on Miles Davis' "Blue in Green" and Simply Red's "Holding Back the Years." At the same time, she was featured on both of Esperanza Spalding's Music Society albums. 2013's Live in NYC featured an all-star band that included her husband, drummer Mark Giuliana. Following an extended break after giving birth to her first child, Parlato returned with the pop- and Brazilian-inspired Flor in early 2021 before collaborating with Lionel Loueke for 2023's Lean In.
