Winner of the Great American Jazz Piano Competition and a past guest on Marian McPartland's Piano Jazz, Deanna Witkowski has been heralded for her “consistently thrilling” playing and her “boundless imagination” (All Music Guide). Her 2017 trio album, Makes the Heart to Sing: Jazz Hymns, features 14 of her congregational jazz hymn arrangements along with a companion sheet music book. Her earlier releases include Raindrop: Improvisations with Chopin, a solo piano session that combines jazz, classical, and Brazilian music; three jazz quartet recordings; and the liturgical jazz release, From This Place.
