Greta's Bakery new album "Under Control" is an album full of different influences and vibes, from jazz to funk with a touch of pop and soul music. Coming from jazz singer/composer Greta Panettieri and pianist/composer/producer Andrea Sammartino have written every song with the idea of making an interesting but suitable for all record. All songs have very strong personalities also thanks the the wide arrangements the use of some vintage sounds and analog synths making it all fascinating and rich.
This album is a comp of three magical shows that took place at ZincBar in the core of NYC West Village. The repertoire ranges from classic Brazilian hits like 'Mas Que Nada' (Jorge Bem) and Aquele Abraco (Gilberto Gil) to more sophisticated compositions like Bebe (Hermeto Pascoal) and Beijo Partido (Toninho Horta). The great interplay among the band members creates wonderful moments of improvisations able to take the listener back in the days of the most intense Jazz vanguard.
On their self-titled first album, the multitalented, multicultural New York-based trio known as Greta’s Bakery draw upon their diverse backgrounds and common creative chemistry to deliver a remarkably accomplished, consistently intoxicating debut. Those numbers showcase the band’s formidable songwriting abilities, wide-ranging instrumental talents and inventive arranging skills, as well as Greta’s charismatic vocals, which range from seamless jazz scatting to intimate introspection.
