By Mary Whipple HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on September 1, 2007
(5 stars for Roberta, but be careful with the CD). Following up on the success of "Easy to Love," Roberta Gambarini released a 2006 collection of fourteen songs, which is entitled "Lush Life" and which, to date, has achieved four, five-star ratings on Amazon under the ASIN of B000JLPKVE. "You Are There," THIS product, is almost exactly the same album, and Amazon's "Better Together" feature, on this page, in which they urge you to "Buy this album with Lush Life at $64.95," will surely disappoint anyone who loves Roberta enough to spend that kind of money for two CDs.

Though both CDs contain fourteen songs and play at over an hour, ten of the fourteen songs from this CD are identical to those on "Lush Life." "You are There," this CD, omits "Skylark," "Body and Soul," "Cool Breeze," and "Lush Life #2," all of which were recorded in an exciting live performance at the Umbria Jazz Festival, and substitutes "People Time," "You're Getting to be a Habit," "Come Sunday," and "How Are Things in Glocca Morra." If you happen to love the four that are included here instead of the four "live" songs on "Lush Life," maybe this CD will appeal to you, but you must be willing to pay the very steep purchase price.

If, for some reason, you decide to buy this CD INSTEAD of "Lush Life," you will find Roberta brilliant, as always. Limiting the accompaniment to just the piano of Hank Jones, she is very much a cabaret singer here, singing mostly slow, sad ballads with her gorgeous alto, and varying the phrasing to give new emphasis to the lyrics. There are no vocal pyrotechnics here, as she concentrates on the song itself, rather than taking it into new realms with improvisation and variation. The result is a wonderfully moody CD which has moments of excitement but only a few hints of her huge talent with scat and high energy jazz variations. n Mary Whipple

When all's said and done, all a good singer needs is a good pianist. Ella Fitzgerald never sounded better than with Ellis Larkins, and here, Roberta Gamabarini does well to entrust her youthful voice to the expert hands of Hank Jones.
Italian singer Roberta Gambarini walks this musical tightrope on her new album, where the only accompaniment is provided by Hank Jones's discreet piano.
Eldest and last of the Jones dynasty that included superstar drummer Elvin and trumpeter Thad, Hank knows every great song inside-out.
"Stardust" and "Deep Purple" reflect his taste and mature ability to combine modern chord voicings with the earlier right-hand elegance of a Teddy Wilson.
Roberta, a bright newcomer from Italy, now based in New York, lacks Ella's unique tonal richness but has similar warmth and flexibility.
She was born in Turin and in 1998 moved to the USA, where she won third place in the Thelonious Monk Jazz Vocal Competition and was more recently voted No. 1 talent deserving wider recognition in Down Beat's 2007 Critics' Poll.
(Her very first CD, currently unavailable, was released in 19991 for BMG with the title "APRESLUDE" with Italian guitarist Antonio Scarano).
"The tracks on ARE YOU THERE explore various melodic permutations of some of the pair's favorite standards by the likes of Duke Ellington, Benny Carter, Billy Strayhorn, Irving Berlin and EY Harburg--the intent, it seems, being to extract as much beauty from the line as possible. Gambarini displays an aptitude for bebop scatting unusual in singers of her generation, especially on "When The Lights Are Low" and "Just Squeeze Me", during which she and Jones swap brief and inspired musical anecdotes.

I love this album. It was a "pre-order" but only took a couple of days. Shipment was fast and I've listened to this CD over and over again. Such a sultry, smooth voice...reminds me a bit of Ella Fitzgerald....good classy singer...I am sure to purchase more CDs from this vocalist. This selection is on my list of favorites and I will not hesitate to purchase this as a gift for family and friends! So glad Amazon suggested this in their email tips, and I will enjoy the sounds and songs for years to come!
Thank you Roberta Gambarini for YOU ARE THERE, .....I'm glad YOU are!

It's refreshing to hear a vocalist that so clearly comes out of Carmen McRae instead of the usual Ella and Sassy descendants. Roberta Gambarini does an amazing job at taking you back in time with her vocal style; still, it's not just a remake of what was done half a century ago - it's very personal, here and now. Add the piano of the one and only Hank Jones, the accompanist/pianist who in his old age still shows what music is all about, and you have a remarkable duet record that proves just how alive and vibrant music rooted deeply in tradition can be.

Yes, You ARE There! It has a cabaret intimacy, and sensuousness. This is a perfect jazz recording with the combo of Roberta and Hank Jones. Roberta's voice has a certain confidence and brightness. And when first hearing her sing i thought Je ne sais Quoi? It felt like the rush and sparkle as from a fine wine. Explanation?....the warm Italian ambiance is apparent. She definitely reminds us of Carmen McCrae---but without the melancholy undertones, and more like bliss instead. Anyway, isn't it a good thing to be compared to the gold standard (Carmen)? Here's a generous CD with 14 tracks and three pages of liner notes all written by Roberta. Sweet.
