Clarity, Music of Clare Fischer 

Grammy-nominated vocalist ROSEANNA VITRO debuts “CLARITY – MUSIC OF CLARE FISCHER,” premiering lyric versions of the composer’s outstanding melodies on a new CD from Random Act Records. Sara Caswell’s violin soars over pianist Mark Soskin’s ingenious arrangements.

September 26th, 7 pm. One Set – CD Release Party & Video -Joe’s Pub-  

425 Lafayette St, New York, NY 10003  (212) 539-8778 

 Roseanna Vitro, Sara Caswell, Mark Soskin,  Dean Johnson, Tim Horner, Mino Cinelu Release date: September 30th  on Random Act Records

Read Bill Milkowski’s Notes:


 “Roseanna’s voice is better than ever, more personal, more HER like no one else can be.   She’s mostly singing songs we haven’t heard before, but all of Fischer’s breezy songs immediately sound so tunefully familiar.  All the playing is lovely, and Sara Caswell’s little counterpoints are the secret weapon.   CLARITY is all very enjoyable, enough that one wants to listen to it all again. ”

The Versatility of Jazz Songstress Roseanna Vitro

“Versatility is one of Vitro’s key trademarks as shown by her three acclaimed, special project albums. Imaginative and deeply thought out, they’re homages to such diverse artists as Randy Newman; Ray Charles on “Catchin’ Some Rays: The Music of Ray Charles” and Bill Evans on “Conviction: Thoughts of Bill Evans.” And in that same Vitro vein of versatility and variety, she’s ventured into wide-ranging, yet quite accessible explorations with one of her more frequent, favorite and finest collaborators, the great pianist Kenny Werner.”,0,6421434.story

  • Randy Newman quote: ” It’s a great honor to have musicians of this quality devote themselves to doing these really great versions of some of my songs.  I feel about it much the way I did when Harry Nilsson did an album of my songs.  Roseanna is a great artist.”
