Album Notes
Setting sail on the waters of music, drawing from the world’s beauty and versatility.

A sailing ship is sure to encounter various adventures in its travels -- sunshine, storms, calm waters, and high waves. Of Sailing Ships and the Stars in Your Eyes is a diverse musical adventure that sparkles with shining vocals by a respected world vocalist of broad tastes and distinctive experiences, the amazing Gabriele Tranchina.
Each cut found on Of Sailing Ships and The Stars in Your Eyes (Rainchant Eclectic Records, RER1001, Sept 2017) is an adventure to a new destination. Bossa, Latin, swing, ballads, a 7/4, improv.... sadness, hope, joy, relationships, the future... all are there. We are again reminded of how much music is a true and accurate reflection of life itself. Gabriele sets foot on many shores, singing in 5 languages and a vocalese on the 7/4 “A Song for India”. This CD is a progression of her desire to explore music and rhythms from different cultures.
Gabriele Tranchina, vocalist, is joined on this album by her husband pianist, composer and arranger, Joe Vincent Tranchina, who fills the tunes with unusual textures and shapes, guiding the high-level musicians in the band. His tastes, too, are complex and unexpected and the arrangements add an enormous richness to the overall impact of the individual tunes and the entire album.
The other musicians in the band Carlo De Rosa (bass), Grammy award winning Vince Cherico (drums) and Renato Thoms (percussion) each give a distinctive flavor with their individual specialties, contributing unique aspects to each melody and rhythm. Whenever a group of musicians of this highest level gathers, the music they spontaneously create is impossible to categorize or even capture in words. Only listening will truly reveal what has been sculpted as it arose in each moment.
-Jeanie LoVetri

Of Sailing Ships and the Stars in Your Eyes is absolutely a voyage into music's wide horizons. We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed creating it.
- Gabriele & Joe Vincent Tranchina

“ is clear from Tranchina’s performance that she is a vocalist of the highest order. Her style is not conventional. ...When she interprets the narrative of a song and gets in to character she has few peers. Anything new from her will be a welcome addition to the literature of vocal music.” - Raul da Gama,

“ Tranchina can swing with the vivacity of Anita O’Day and echo the fragility of Astrud Gilberto on ballads, but there is nothing deriva:ve in her kaleidoscopic flourishes, embracing chants, rap, spoken passages and vocalese.”
-Christopher Loudon, JazzTimes
