Saputo usually writes the setlist by hand about an hour before the show, but it will probably include such songs as "I’ve never been in love before," "Cheek to cheek," "Call me," "Until I met you," "Fool on the hill," "They can’t take that away from me," "Bye bye blackbird," "Chega de saudade," "My man’s blues," "Exactly like you" and "'Round midnight." She promises more surprises too.
Her first CD, “Gina Saputo,” which featured pianist Gerald Clayton, was recorded with vocal sessions produced by Grammy award nominated vocalist Tierney Sutton, who said, “Gina has the talent as well as the passion to stretch and think outside the box.” After two successful tours of Japan, her CD has climbed to #3 on the prestigious Swing Journal charts, and has received rave reviews. She performed (at the Once In A Blue Moon club in Seoul) and taught (as a guest professor at Gwangju University) in South Korea, toured Japan a second time with Grammy nominated pianist Bill Cunliffe, performed in Oregon with pianist Benny Green, at Club Nokia at LA Live, and at the Skywards Dubai International Jazz Festival. Gina sings regularly at Steamers Jazz Club (10 years!), The Hip Kitty, Ambrosia and First & Hope Supper Club.
