ENGLISHThe new highly anticipated album from New York's jazz wonder Gretchen Parlato, a real rising star who is being championed by Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter and Gilles Peterson. Gretchen Parlato is New York's new sensation. Striking the ideal balance between precision and flexibility, between jazz and downtown sensibility she is never predictable, blurring the lines between singer and instrumentalist as she takes a lyric - and at other times improvised flights of wordless fancy - to places it's never before been. On 'In a Dream', Gretchen Parlato and her intuitive support team reinvent constantly the art of singing. Aligning with a virtuosic quartet she describes as "inspiring, creative, sensitive, musical souls " -- new jazz star Lionel Loueke on guitar, Aaron Parks on piano and Fender Rhodes (both Blue Note recording artists), Derrick Hodge on acoustic and electric bass, and drummer Kendrick Scott - Parlato brings the warmth and compelling command of her much-heralded live performances to 10 exquisite new peeks into her artistic personality. Both Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter are already fans. Hancock has said that Parlato has a "deep, almost magical connection to the music ", and Shorter has said "in an inconspicuous way, Gretchen plays the same instrument as Frank Sinatra. "
