Grammy-nominated singer Gretchen Parlato and the UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra will shine at Savoy JAZZFest on Women’s Day, Friday, March 8!

Gretchen Parlato (US), one of the most respected jazz singers of the moment, will come to Savoy JAZZFest as a soloist of the UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra. This year, Parlato is nominated for a Grammy in the tough Best Jazz Vocal Album series with his album Lean In. Parlato, who has been nominated for a Grammy twice before, is also known for her sensual and nuanced voice and strong stage presence. Parlato, who charmed the audience at Pori Jazz Festival in 2022, will now perform for the first time in Helsinki, together with the UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra. The big band arrangements are made by Jim McNeely. The conductor is Ed Partyka.

The first set of the evening goes to young vibraphonist phenomenon Sasha Berliner, who has already performed with the brightest stars of the jazz world, such as Christian McBride and Cecile McLorin Salvant. At the Savoy JAZZFest, Berliner will be joined by pianist Rasmus Sorensen, bassist Simon Jermyn and drummer Joe Peri. See the entire Savoy JAZZFest program here >>
