Jazz Diva Greta Panettieri celebrates 20 years of her musical career with a new album: "Collection" out december 10th

s

he showed her incredible talent to the world already. Pop, free jazz, Brazilian Music, Greta Panettieri's eclecticism has no boundaries and has developed thanks to her innate virtuosity and refined charm.

After having collected a long series of sold out shows abroad and in Italy with her last tours "Shattered-Sgretolata" and “ Non Gioco Più”, Greta has decided to enclose her personality and polyhedric talent in a new unique album. 

Out December 10th "Collection" the album, a sweet  remastered edition of her best interpretations, both her well known hits but also some more obscure "goodies" from her first albums.

Greta’s musical story starts at a very young age, studying violin and piano at classical Conservatory in Perugia, she started preforming professionally at age 15. She moved to New York City right after high school- her experience in the US is documented in nice comic book  titled ”Viaggio in Jazz”-. In the US Greta's vocal skills are noticed by Universal/DECCA who will release her first album "The Edge of Everything" in 2010.

To her major debut album, followed a European tour opening for Joe Jackson’s concerts and many collaborations with world’s greatest musicians as such as Larry Williams, Diane Warren, Curtis King, Terri Lynn Carrington, Mitch Forman, Robert Irvin III, Toninho Horta, and many more. Back in Italy  she released an amazing tribute to Mina, Italy’s most famous singer from the 60’ies, that enchanted both critics and public. Since then she never stopped touring, Russia, China, Europe and of course all major festivals and clubs in Italy . To support Greta Panettieri during her career we always find her partner in music and in life, producer and pianist Andrea Sammartino - who has always taken care of arrangements and production for Greta's music and whom has worked on this remastering as well.

The idea to remaster a collection of Greta’s songs at 96.000K 24bit came to do justice to the role of Sound in all its expressive qualities. Precisely for this reason, in addition to customary presence in all digital stores, you will be able to download a High Quality version of “Collection” on Greta’s website: www.gretapanettieri.com. Anybody will be able to find an exclusive edition in “flac”: a very high definition format that will allow the listener to fully enjoy the experience. Among the 12 songs on the tracklist, we find musicians who have always supported Greta during her recording career: from Brazilians Mauricio Zottarelli, Itaiguara Brandão and Neney Santos, to Curtis King Jr. (well know by  the Italian public for being one of Bruce Springsteen’s excellent vocalist of the E-Street Band), to Fabrizio Bosso. And again: Daniele Mencarelli, Alessandro Paternesi,Francesco Puglisi, Giuseppe Bassi, Alfonso Deidda, Stefano Tamborrino, Gaetano Partipilo, Armando Sciommeri, as well as some co-songwriters: Piji, Jennie Booth and Claudio Gregori.
