“Every singer has a strong point; for some like Ella, it’s relentless swing, for Sarah Vaughan, it’s range. There has to be something that stands out in the best singers. For Denise Donatelli, who’s put out two excellent solo discs, her secret is the ability to enunciate a lyric with perfect dictation and crystal clarity, while still being able to swing it like an Olympian hammer thrower.”
