Jazz/blues singer and composer Patrizia is a Denver, Colorado native. The daughter of a famous surgeon, she grew up with a love for all kinds of music. She says she was nicknamed the Sultry Lady of Jazz by her fans “because of her naturally pure way of creating strong emotions in her listeners.”
Her full-length All The Things You Are was released in 2007.
