Anita Robles has been called: “the most energetic, sexy Latin Jazz Singer to grace the stage” by saxophone player/keyboardist Larry Williams (Michael Jackson, Al Jarreau, Quincy Jones). Anita says: “I’ve been fortunate to work with some of the most notable music figures and I studied they’re subtleties, their techniques, their joie de vivre. I was mimicking every Ella Fitzgerald riff from the time I was a child. And I’ve paid my dues.”
Anita was attending Law School in Cordoba but, abandoned that career by graduating from Opera School. By 1991 her desire and determination for singing jazz afforded her with a Visa to immigrate to the U.S. where she studied vocal improvisation, percussion and guitar.
