A Note on Deanna Witkowski

Winner of the Great American Jazz Piano Competition and a former guest on Marian McPartland’s Piano Jazz, pianist/composer/bandleader Deanna Witkowski has been heralded for her “consistently thrilling” playing and her “boundless imagination” (All Music Guide). Moving with remarkable ease between Brazilian, jazz, Afro-Cuban and classical music, Witkowski approaches her work with the heart and technique of a daring improviser. Her most current album, From This Place, features her liturgical jazz with musicians including John Patitucci and Kate McGarry and led to a second appearance on National Public Radio’s Weekend Edition Sunday. Her fifth recording, a solo project featuring arrangements that blend Chopin nocturnes with Brazilian and jazz standards, will be released this fall.
