Roseanna Vitro / Kenny Werner

Maybe she’s not in the “mouths of the world” as her other companions, profession singers, perhaps more given to fuss and with greater wisdom to adorn profitable careers, thus better falling into the good graces of the sacrosanct discography "market".

Roseanna Vitro is, undoubtedly, an indisputable lady and especially versatile talent, combining the exquisite taste of her choices, always subject to modest swing laying in her interpretations, almost utilitarian treatment of her corner, making of her one of the most interesting female voices of today.

No wonder that, at her side, frequently have been musicians generally more than mere accompanists, themselves soloists, among which is essential to highlight James Carter, Randy Brecker, Ray Anderson, Adam Rogers, Joe Lovano or Buster Williams, and lately Clare Fisher's music, just to refer to those that demonstrate the broad spectrum of musical interests.

Characteristic of Roseanna’s particular style is the wise association which generally makes the instrumental environment in which she likes to sing and, in this concert, she will only have the company of her friend and pianist of choice for over 25 years, Kenny Werner.
Werner’s figure is certainly among the half-dozen great pianists of timeless and unclassifiable style that today keeps alive the splendor of an instrument which so many glories brought to Jazz, while being, at the same time, a creator of musical moments in which the classicism and modernity come together in an unpredictable and never stays, thus enriching few as the music playing and it touches.

Charles Mingus, Archie Shepp, Joe Lovano, Eddie Gomez, Bob Brookmeyer, Peter Erskine, John Abercrombie, Lee Konitz, Joe Henderson, Tom Harell, Gunther Schuller, Dave Holland, Chris Potter or Jack DeJohnette are just some of the names, that over the years, were by his side in the creative invention of Kenny Werner, himself a first line composer, so this concert is worthy envisions to become and be part of the best nights of the Estoril Jazz.
