 Roseanna Vitro has the gift of bringing popular, or not so obvious tunes, into the jazz celebration, with no limitations; a world developed early growing up in Arkansas in a family of gospel shouters who also dug opera and Frank Sinatra. She’s sung alongside Kenny Barron, Oscar Peterson and Lionel Hampton. Vitro has recorded live at the Kennedy Center, and she’s recorded fabulous tributes to Ray Charles, Bill Evans and Randy Newman, for which she was nominated for a BEST VOCAL GRAMMY 2011.
