As a conclusion to the fourth edition of the Ognissanti Suona il Jazz Festival on December 19th there was the concert of the great american singer and pianist, Dena DeRose, as guest of the Rainbow Jazz Combo conducted by Duccio Bertini.
Considered as “the most creative and compelling singer- pianist since Shirley Horn”, Dena DeRose, she is gifted with an excellent voice and exquisite piano technique.
