“Dena DeRose is a veteran pianist-singer who has long carved out her own musical identity within the modern mainstream of jazz.” —Scott Yanow
Dena DeRose is one of those incredibly rare talents who is not only a virtuoso singer and pianist, but whose mastery of the repertoire and ability to delight a room full of jazz fans can only be described as “world-class.” A swinging, two-fisted player with a command of bebop that makes even her hottest solos seem effortless, Dena is constantly touring Europe from her home base in Austria, so this chance to catch her in her SJW habitat is a real treat. Anchoring her trio is the phenomenal drummer Akira Tana performing alongside bassist Peter Barshay and saxophonist Ralph Moore, the brilliant tenor saxophonist who was last at the Stanford Jazz Festival with the Ray Brown Trio.
