Italian jazz vocalist Valentina Ranalli, from Naples, is noted for her purity of tone, phrasing, intonation, and improvisational ability. Valentina sings in English, Italian, Neapolitan, French, and Portuguese. She studied singing, piano, and music theory, going though opera singing, gospel music, and jazz music since she was a child.
