Pianist, Composer and Author Deanna Witkowski has been on an interesting musical and life journey that has included classical and religious music, plus quite a bit of jazz.
Dr. Billy Taylor led her to learn more about Mary Lou Williams - and learning more about Mary Lou has brought her to Pittsburgh.
We had the chance to have a long chat a new coffee shop in Morningside this week, and Deanna shared stories of music, discovery and Mary Lou. Hear it and music of Deanna Witkowski on WZUM’s The Scene. Thursday at 6pm, Friday and Saturday at noon and Sunday at 5.
We also get a sneak preview of the new Jeff Goldblum Album, and some music from Tania Grubbs, who has a new project in the I AM series coming up October 16th at Alphabet City.
