About

NY-based flutist Gina Izzo, "Rattles speakers and expectations with stop-time razzle, vocal (flute-talk) and electronic (phaser) effects" (NYC Jazz Record)." Far from conventional, Izzo integrates improvisation and analog FX, with flute at the center.

Izzo has been presented at Duke Performances with Steve Coleman and Natal Eclipse, Lincoln Center Out of Doors with Revive Music and Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, Time Square Arts as part of Charles Gaines "The American Manifest," and at The Jazz Standard as part of Ambrose Akinmusire's 'The Imagined Savior is Far Easier To Paint.​' She has performed at venues including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, David Geffen Hall, Merkin Concert Hall, The Stone, Joe's Pub at The Public Theater, the Jazz Standard, National Sawdust, and the Bang on a Can Festival, among others. Recent collaborations include performances and recordings with artists Gabriel Garzón-Montano on the 2020 release "Agüita," Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, Doe Paoro, and an episode "SLAPP Suits" with John Oliver on HBO.

Izzo's most recent project, ladyybirdd, was described as "an absolute masterpiece in experimentation"(XuneMag). The debut track into what is wanted, released in 2021, encompassed "an unbridled sense of adventure, razor-sharp technique, and dynamic intensity" (Honk Magazine), and was featured by I Care If You Listen. In 2018, Izzo co-founded bespoken with Eunbi Kim, a mentorship organization for women in music, and has served over 75+ artists from around the world through their fellowship program. In 2010 she co-founded RighteousGIRLS, with pianist Erika Dohi, whose album gathering blue received 4.5 stars in Downbeat Magazine.

Izzo can be heard on Jagjaguwar, Nation Sawdust Tracks, Panoramic Records, and New Focus Recordings.
