Blue Monday. A 13-song collection reveals her coming more into her own style of interpreting jazz. We have originals written by Letizia and her producer Lenny White, new arrangements of Jazz standards like Joe Henderson’s “Recordame” which Lenny and Letizia have written lyrics for and titled it with it’s english translation "True Love, Remember Me” , "But Not for me" (inspired by Ahmad Jamal version) and an ingenious medley of “Sweet Georgia Brown” and Miles Davis’s “Dig” fused with a Neapolitan chant which is inspired by The Washerwoman’s song from the opera La Gatta Cenerentola by Roberto De Simone.
You'll find tributes to the great Lelio Luttazzi, Sophia Loren, an original dedicated to Pino Daniele and his "Sule pe parlà" cover, Amy Winehouse and Doris Day too!
The mediterranean passion speaks through the jazz language."Introducing Letizia Gambi" is the synthesis of two apparently distant worlds blended in perfect harmony, creating an authentic sound that combines Black American heritage with Mediterranean melodies. It is a "cultural fusion". Lenny and Letizia arranged some of the most popular songs of the Italian and Neapolitan repertoire, international covers, and they composed original tunes for the project. The refined sensibility of the Italian singer, together with the exceptional experience of the American artist, merged to give birth to a 21st century musical approach, as the two artists like to define it.
MDB is an American DJ who fell in love with the song "My Town (Carmela)" from the album "Introducing Letizia Gambi" and decided to remix it. "My Town"is the english adaptation that Letizia wrote of the 1976's song "Carmela" by Sergio Bruni. It's quite strange to put together an Italian singer,a Neapolitan old song and an American DJ...but that's what makes it very special.
