Carmela Rappazzo

Carmela was raised in upstate New York with a love of the Great American Songbooks. Her father and five of his brothers were big band swing musicians. Music was always a part of family gatherings.
She has lived and performed in New York City, Los Angeles and internationally. She has recorded and released three standard jazz cover albums and two original composition albums receiving critical praise for all.
She was nominated for a New Mexico Music Award for best jazz original composition, has appeared in several feature films and been a part of the Musicians Assistance Program, a division of Music Cares.
Her album release “Myths and Legends” is a collection of original songs written by Carmela about difficult women, love gone wrong, and the dreams and spirits within us all. The recording also includes two covers from Duke Ellington and Al Anderson.
The newest release “Howlin’ At The Moon” was recorded at The Ellis Marsalis Center For Music in New Orleans and is heavily influenced by the people, culture and sounds of the city. It features the great local musicians that reside in the Crescent City, Oscar Rossignoli (serving as Musical Director and arranger), Jasen Weaver, Mahmoud Choki, Steve Lands, Gerald T. Watkins, Jeronne Amari Ansari, Mark McGrain, and Steve Glenn.
