''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.


  Yes, we are inundated with vocal recordings and the piano trio as well. I was thinking though...while there is still time before we start with the best of the year I think this may be the first time...in a LONG time...that I will have vocal releases in my top picks category. Things could change but as of now the Kurt Elling and Jackie Ryan CD's are the cream of that crop IMO. I'm curious as to what other vocal releases folk are really diggin. The Gail Pettis is very nice as well.
