Programming Note: There will be no Fresh Air this evening. Instead, we will air the "Reveal" documentary, including a story on the path heroin takes.
Vocalist Denise Donatelli studied classical piano as a child in Pennsylvania, but always loved listening to jazz. After she raised her boys in Atlanta she started singing in clubs with a jazz trio and eventually moved to LA. That has led to her Grammy nominated CD with Geoffry Keezer. Tonight Denise stops by the studio to talk about her how she got here, her music and her Friday night show at the Tempe Center for the Arts. Jazz awakes tonight at 8!
