“Night Journey Rewind with Vocalist Dori Rubbicco” a Review by James Graves

PictureEmotional, magical, and unmistakably original. As a singer-songwriter Dori Rubbicco inspired by the likes of Joni Mitchell—which makes perfect sense given her penchant for ambitious musical searching—as well as vocal stylists like Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan, Dori understands the power of both style and substance and her performance conveys that power to the audience. Her set list is full of unique interpretations and elegantly imagined covers, revealing an artist able to both compose and interpret with equally successful results.

 

Rubbicco has worked as a solo singer-songwriter and with groups, including the Miami Jazz Ensemble, the Gerald Wiggins Trio, and the Blues Train Band. Her new CD “STAGE DOOR LIVE!” was recorded at New Bedford’s intimate Zeiterion Theater www.dorirubbicco.com
