The Dena DeRose Trio

Sunday July 22nd, 2018 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
SOhO 1221 State St # 205, Santa Barbara, CA 93101

The Santa Barbara Jazz Society is so pleased to present Dena DeRose and her trio in concert on July 22 from 1 to 4pm at SOhO. It’s no small accomplishment to be thought of as “the most compelling singer-pianist since Shirley Horn”, but that’s exactly how Joel Siegel of the Washington City Paper described Dena DeRose. She not only awes her audience and music critics with her facility on the piano and her swinging, soothing vocal style but, as Richard Scheinin (San Jose Mercury) aptly puts it…”she exudes joy…what soul!” She has brought that vitality and innovation along side when performing with such jazz giants as Ray Brown, Clark Terry, Marian McPartland, Benny Golson, Scott Hamilton. Tootie Heath, Kenny Burrell, and a host of others. Accompanying Miss DeRose are Bay Area bassist, Peter Barshay and L.A. based Tina Raymond on drums.
