Featuring: Kenny Werner, Dean Johnson, Tim Horner Roseanna Vitro is one of the most remarkable voices in female vocal Jazz since many years and has released 9 albums within the last 20 years. This last year live at the Kennedy Center recorded album is probably the best recording she ever did - with a selection of sidemen which she knows for years, above all one of the best jazzpianists today worldwide: Kenny Werner. The press has been writing enthusiastic reviews about her, here is a selection: New York Post: "... she displayed a big, warm voice, well controlled. Steady, true intonation. A sense of phrase and a concern for the weight and texture of the lyric. Roseanna sang with simple eloquence.. a fine singer, with exceptional vocal equipment." -Richard M. Sudhalter Downbeat: "...she has the unrelenting scatability of Ella Fitzgerald, the pristine elegance of Sarah Vaughan, the blues-bucket gutsiness of Aretha Franklin, and her distinct, clear voice." - Michael G. Nastos Jazz Times: "(Vitro) sings like a velvet gauntlet, the smoky atmospherics of Morgana King, veiling the harder realities of a Carmen McRae." - Fred Bouchard. "(Vitro) has a tone and exuberance not unlike Nancy Wilson at her best." - Ken Franckling.
