Vocalist Monica Rizzio and Finnish gypsy guitar player Olli Soikkeli come together to bring a whole new jazz sound to Cotuit Center for the Arts on Saturday, May 18, at 7:30 PM.
Widely known on the Cape for her vocal, violin, and ukulele playing in the popular acoustic folk band Tripping Lily, Monica Rizzio will show off her jazzier side, performing jazz staples, gypsy jazz, some country jazz fusion, and several original tunes.
Rizzio’s voice has been praised by performer Chris Botti, who said, “It won’t be long before Monica Rizzio and her voice are a household name.”
Rizzio has long loved jazz. As a child growing up in Texas, she used to stay up late and sing along to the records of Nat King Cole, Judy Garland, Perry Como, and Ella Fitzgerald.
