The Chopin Project
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. Click the icon below to hear a sample of that track.
Deanna Witkowski has combined The Spirituality of the Soul and Heart with The Spirituality of Jazz. These performances are, above all, prayerful. They are also properly liturgical and and should be sung and played in churches. Ms. Witkowski continues the work of Mary Lou Williams who was the first major Jazz Artist to compose for liturgical purposes. This music is 'healing to the Soul'.
-Rev. Peter F. O'Brien, S.J.
Length of Days
Witkowski's sheer musicality is abundantly evident, from a well-developed sense of line and harmony in composition, to the airily individual takes on standards like "Hi-Lili, Hi-Lo," "In the Still of the Night" and "I'm Beginning to See the Light."
