$15 pp music charge  $12 pp minimum

 

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

Roseanna Vitro is celebrating the release of her new CD and has prepared a special holiday performance for Trumpets with special guests In addition to selections from her CD, this fabulous vocalist will feature the music of The Great American Composers, Clare Fischer, Randy Newman, Bill Evans and Ray Charles with arrangements by Mark Soskin and Roseanna Vitro.
