September 14th, the official release date of my latest Savant Records recording, Denise Donatelli's When Lights Are Low.
The singing of Denise Donatelli is particularly remarkable, since her style is able to employ the positive aspects of both unbridled scat-singing and lyrical balladry. Of special note is the rich timbre of Donatelli's voice, which has the clarity and flexibility to sing almost any imaginable genre from pop/blues to operatic aria.
With musical direction by Geoffrey Keezer and the participation of musicians such as Ingrid Jensen, Hamilton Price and others, Denise Donatelli here shows herself to be a talent who belongs in the upper echelon of modern jazz vocalists.
Denise Donatelli will performing with the Geoffrey Keezer Quartet at Vitello's in Studio City on Thursday, October 21.
