Stardust – 2007

Roberta Gambarini


One of the finest jazz singers teams up with the Slide Hampton Big Band

During the past decade, Roberta Gambarini has consistently been one of the top jazz vocalists, displaying a beautiful voice, a wide range, and a mastery of the bebop vocabulary, being equally skilled as a scat-singer and an interpreter of ballads.

She is heard in the latter category on this wonderful film clip, singing “Stardust” in 2007 while joined by a big band arranged and conducted by trombonist Slide Hampton.
