The Chopin Project: hear clips and pre-order here!

Deanna’s upcoming solo piano recording features articulate, unusual jazz takes on eight Chopin pieces, four of which combine Chopin with Brazilian pieces (Manhã de Carnaval, Olha Maria, Insensatez) or rhythms (baião). Six short free improvisations are interspersed between the Chopin arrangements.

Witkowski has combined the spirituality of the soul and heart with the spirituality of jazz...her music is 'healing to the soul.'  -Rev. Peter O'Brien, Mary Lou Williams Foundation

Wide Open Window: hear clips and order here!

Witkowski is not far from jazz stardom with her keyboard techniques, her imaginative composing and arranging, and her wordless vocalizing. Remember her name.
-Harvey Siders, JazzTimes
