Grace Testani Picture Grace Testani
"...If you like your singers bold and sassy, Grace Testani delivers on both counts! ~ Jazz Times Magazine
"... She showed that she has listened well. She bent notes, stretched phrases, scatted and melismatized with the best of them." ~ NY Post
"The first thing a listener hears on Grace Testani's Something's Coming isn't Grace Testani, but rather an obviously seasoned back-up group complete with congas and a McCoy Tyner-influenced vamp. In only 14 seconds, the take-charge nature of the instrumentalists creates anticipation for the singer to follow. Testani doesn't disappoint. Instead of meeting expectations head-on with the melody of "Sweetest Sounds," Testani repeats the note on which pianist Jim McNeely concludes the intro, and then descends chromatically to the resolution of first chorus at the repeat.
Testani possesses verve and force and puts them to use in her singing."
Latin rhythms, sonorous ballads and jumpy bebop, you'll love Grace Testani, a sensitive and versatile performer in the current generation of jazz vocalists."

Grace Testani Bio and Fact Sheet, 20 Oct 2014 [cached]
Grace Testani Picture Grace Testani
In making the journey, Grace Testani never forgot the warm evenings with her Italian working class family, gathered with relatives and a few bottles of wine, singing songs of the old country to the accompaniment of accordions, mandolins and guitars. Their exuberance and love for music, a sheer joy of performing, was incorporated by Grace in a musical presence and vocal style which now places her in the vanguard of jazz vocalists.
A singer in the tradition of Annie Ross, Anita O'Day, Sarah Vaughn, Billie Holiday, Eddie Jefferson and Ella Fitzgerald, Grace combines lyrical and ethereal scatting - reminiscent of the great "bop" players - with a technically precise harmonic range and the kind of risk taking that few jazz singers attempt in their careers.
In addition to her arranging, Grace is also a composer and is co-writer with Chick Corea and Kenny Barron.
Grace has appeared in a Japanese TV documentary about world-renown trumpeter, Teramasa Hino , has open twice for Sonny Fortune and was even in The Godfather II.
A former actress and co founder of the Capital Rep Theatre Company and the Castillo Cultural Center, Grace communicates a dramatic and impassioned presence with sensitive lyrics adapted to works recognized originally as instrumentals. Her natural ease with a wide ranging repertoire that includes swing, ballads, Latin (including Salsa and Samba), jazz and original works derives from her depth of experience as a composer, arranger and solo pianist. Grace has performed in numerous musical theatre productions as well as with her own quintet and is often featured on the roster of benefit performances in the New York City area.
In addition to singing, arranging, composing and playing keyboards, Grace is on the faculty of New York University - SCPS and has been on the faculties of The New School (the Guitar Study Center), The Drummers Collective/ SOJ Contemporary Music Studios and The Hebrew Arts School (Abraham Goodman House), a tutor for New York University (Gallatin Division) and Empire State College.
Grace is now the Director of The Singers Center - Sing Jazz and More ™, a learning and networking center for singers in New York City and Online.
