Top jazz vocalist and her exceptional pianist/arranger perform from two Grammy nominated recordings accompanied by a stellar quartet.
Denise Donatelli - vocals, Geoffrey Keezer - piano; Essiet Essiet - bass; Sylvia Cuenca - drums/percussion, Peter Sprague - guitar
Denise Donatelli, one of today’s premiere jazz vocalists, received her second consecutive 2012 GRAMMY® nomination for Soul Shadows (Savant Records), arrangements and music direction courtesy of the excellent pianist Geoff Keezer. Their previous collaboration on When Lights are Low received two Grammy nominations in 2011, one for Best Jazz Vocal Album and another for Best Arrangement Accompanying a Vocalist. "Keezer provides just the right landscapes, and Donatelli steps in with class and style and makes an exquisite duet between Donatelli's rich voice and Keezer's luscious piano sound and top-rank quartet." As expected, has assembled an amazing quartet with credits at the top.
