“One of our favorite vocalists in the contemporary jazz scene, LA-based young diva Gina Saputo...she likes to sing in Portuguese, scatting and phrasing in a very creative way, sometimes sounds like the missing link between Carmen, Basia (check her own groovy “Explain,” on which she also emulates Billie), Flora and Tierney. Not to be missed.”
