About Denise King
Denise King is a very passionate singer who has a way of pulling her audiences into her performances. Listening to her warm tone, impeccable phrasing, and the absolute control she has of her voice is mesmerizing. Over the years, she has shared the stage with such greats as Roy Hargrove, Brecker Brothers, Phil Wright, Cecil McBee, Christian McBride, Orrin Evans, Lonnie Plaxico, Uri Caine, Sid Simmons, Dr. Guy Ramsey, JD Walter, Barbara Morrison, Derrick Hodge, Chris Beck, Billy Paul, Jean Carne, Celine Dion, Bunny Sigler and the list goes on and on. This concert will be her last in Philadelphia before she embarks on a European tour with French pianist Olivier Hutman. Their collaboration on the 2011 recording project No Tricks garnered a best jazz vocal nomination by the Academie du Jazz last year.
