Vitro, who will perform on Friday, October 13, earned a 2012 Grammy nomination for "Best Vocal Jazz Album," The Music of Randy Newman, on Motéma Music. An inventive singer, her strengths include rhythmic acuity and free-spirited spontaneity, often heard in her improvisations, using both scat syllables and lyrics. Additionally, she has released twelve critically acclaimed recordings for Motéma, Concord, Challenge, and Half Note Records and has performed with a strong sampling of today’s top jazz artists, most notably Elvin Jones and Christian McBride. Both artists will appear at the Fernandina Beach Golf Club on Bill Melton Road during the 14th annual Amelia Island Jazz Festival. For more information visit www.ameliaislandjazzfestival.com.
