This week's JPL sponsor: Outside Shore Music Wendy Fopeano ''Raining
On The Roses''
''Wendy Fopeano sings with depth, creativity, and soul.'' Fred Hersch
Considered an exceptional singer by her peers, Wendy has surrounded
herself with some of Denver's world-class talent for her second release
on Outside Shore. The music spans a wide range of moods, rhythms, and
tempos, from the exquisite beauty of Caminhos Cruzados to the wild ride
of Caravan to the upbeat funkiness of David Murrays' ''Morning Song.''
Raised in Kansas City, Wendy started out playing bass, piano, trumpet
and guitar before choosing voice as her main instrument. She currently
hosts a show on jazz89 KUVO every weekday from 1 to 4 pm.
My friend who plays bassoon for the symphony and was raised there tells
that, while it is referred to as "the Bronx", the name of the borough is
plain "Bronx". What a word!
