She has recorded and worked with many renowned artists, including Gato Barbieri, Chick Corea, Ron Carter, Gil Goldstein, Wallace Roney, Patrice Rushen, Lenny White, Donald Vega, Helen Sung, Dave Stryker, Antonio Faraò.

Letizia graduated with a Masters Degree in Jazz Vocal Performance at the Jazz School “Civica Scuola di Musica Claudio Abbado” in Milan.

" Letizia Gambi is a stunning vocalist!"- Sting

"...It was soooo nice to play with/for a singer that can really sing."-Ron Carter

"Lenny White and Letizia Gambi have created the hippest musical address in Naples; at the intersection of Neapolitan music and jazz."-Gil Goldstein

"Letizia Gambi is that rare talent, a charismatic singer emboldened to take ambitious risks. She casts a vocal spell that, while not exclusively jazz, is nonetheless wistful and enchanting."- Downbeat Magazine

“Introducing Letizia Gambi is one of those dramatic arrivals that challenges categories and assumptions. It's a longer way of saying simply that this album is indeed a rare thing – one that deserves to be heard and considered according to its own merits.”-Ashley Khan
