JPR Live Session: Albanie Falletta

Bouncing back and forth between New Orleans where she now lives, and Austin, Texas where she cut her musical teeth, Albanie Falletta has absorbed much of the sound of the American past. There was zydeco, jazz, and blues from the music festivals, and gospel music from churches and backyard parties.

The Monroe, Louisiana native took up guitar before she was a teenager. She turned to jazz after hearing the legendary gypsy guitarist Django Reinharrt, and after listening extensively to other legends like Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday, and Fats Waller, she developed her own unique feel for swing, and was soon hitting stages in and around Austin.

Falletta's latest official release is 2017's Black Coffee Blues, but she's got a newer bootleg recording with her that she sells at shows.
