“Singer Roseanna Vitro has had great success with her strikingly soulful tributes to Ray Charles (1997’s Catchin’ Some Rays) and Bill Evans (2001’s Conviction). Her collection of radically re-imagined Randy Newman originals like “Last Night I Had a Dream,” “In Germany Before the War” and “Sail Away” provides sterling arrangements by pianist Mark Soskin and stirring performances by violinist Sara Caswell. Another triumph by the bluesy Jazz Ambassador.” – Bill Milkowski
Roseanna’s powerhouse group features: “Blues, Bird and Beyond” recording soon with Ted Ludwig, guitar, pianist Oscar Perez, bassist, Dean Johnson, and drummer, Tim Horner.
Grammy-nominated vocalist Roseanna Vitro, whose acclaimed tribute albums to Ray Charles, Bill Evans, and Randy Newman buoyed her career, pays homage to Charlie Parker on her latest (and 15 th ), Sing A Song Of Bird, featuring new lyrics to Parker songs and jazz giants Sheila Jordan, Gary Bartz and the late Bob Dorough.
This gig at Tarrytown’s Jazz Forum celebrates that album and beyond with special guest, guitarist Ted Ludwig who can “burn up the fingerboard with mindboggling technique” (Jazziz).
