CD RELEASE CELEBRATION! 'TELL ME THE TRUTH"
The songs featured on Grammy Nominated Vocalist Roseanna Vitro’s new album, Tell Me the Truth, have been harvested from the rich soil of America. . It is a soulful album, drawn from living, breathing and internalizing a rich array of musical cultures and life experience. Its essence is the surround sound of her youth, featuring songs written or popularized by mentors; Jon Hendricks, Allen Toussaint, Mose Allison, Mavis Staples, Boz Scaggs and The Everly Brothers, among others. They are newly imagined renditions, reborn with arrangements and group interplay that highlight Vitro’s penchant for story telling and musical colorization. It is the fourteenth recording in her distinguished catalog. ~~ The songs of Tell Me The Truth trace the musical journey of a southern girl born into a family of gospel singers who insisted “all things are possible.” She left Texarkana, drawn to Houston and the bandstand of tenor titan Arnett Cobb. Eventually she landed in the West Village of New York City, where she flourished. Vitro has recorded and toured with a host of jazz musicians - among them, Fred Hersch, Kenny Werner, Elvin Jones and Fathead Newman. Her career has embraced bold and creative musical choices. She favors infectious grooves and melodic invention. On Tell Me The Truth, she speaks from the heart, echoing themes heard in previous projects, yet crystallized by the urgency of the times. She is a musical activist, using her art to open hearts and minds. This evening at Scullers, Roseanna and her band will perform songs from her new release.
