Description:Italian singer Roberta Gambarini has by now established herself as one of the best jazz vocalists of her generation. With perfect pitch, amazing chops and deep understanding of the straight ahead jazz tradition, she is a true successor to Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, and Carmen McRae.

Following the swinging CD So In Love featuring West Coast musicians, comes her first new album in four years. The Shadow Of Your Smile is subtitled "Hommage to Japan," and is Roberta's heartfelt gift to the Japanese people who have enthusiastically welcomed and supported her over the years. In her liner notes, she states: "I wanted to put some of my favorite tunes ain a little package, wrap it with a red ribbon and offer it in homage to the audience, friends and music lovers of Japan."

Her voice is as beautiful as ever, and her maturity is evident in her relaxed, spontaneous and masterful delivery. She is supported here by first-call musicians: George Cables provides beautiful, sensitive backing with John Webber and Victor Lewis. Justin Robinson plays alto sax or flute on a few songs. The arrangements are simple and relatively straight forward. No gimmicks, no unnecessary twists. Just beautiful songs with memorable melodies, beautifully sung and presented. Another winner from our beloved star singer! Very highly recommended!

Recorded at Alley Cat Productions South Orange, New Jersey, in April and May, 2013. This Japanese edition released by 55 Records on June 12, 2013. The CD package contains a full-length, English liner notes by Roberta Gambarini.
