Grammy Nominated Vocalist “Roseanna Vitro is a “singer’s singer…she is excellent and still warranting much more attention.” Her deep and precise alto is perfectly tuned and balanced..But Vitro’s skill set does not stop at vocal prowess. She is also a crack arranger, programmer and music journalist. That is a wealth of grace and talent from Hot Springs, Arkansas.
Vitro’s projects are also well-considered and assembled…In 1997, Vitro released the gutsy Catching Some Rays: The Music of Ray Charles (Telarc, 1997) with the support of frequent collaborator pianst Kenny Werner and tenor saxophonist David “Fathead” Newman. “Vitro sings squarely from between Ella Fitzgerald and Betty Carter. Her scat chops are the most certain of any singer expelling air today. Even a bit of her home-state twang may be detected in the bluesy “Swingin’ with the Duke,” providing this writer a warm spot in this approaching Autumn. Honor Roseanna Vitro. C.Michael Bailey
