Dot Time Records is proud to announce the release of the debut CD “Motifs” from young Italian vocalist Chiara Izzi. Chiara caught the attention of Quincy Jones and was awarded 1st prize at the Montreux Jazz Festival Vocal Competition in 2011. Chiara’s prize in this competition was the opportunity to record a CD and we at Dot Time are proud to bring this CD to the market.

Despite her young age, Chiara is very active in the jazz community in Italy and has already performed at a number of high profile European jazz festivals including the Montreux Jazz Festival and Barga Jazz. In addition Chiara has performed numerous club dates in Italy, Belgium, Switzerland, France and the United States.
