Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Equally talented as a pianist and singer, Dena DeRose performs a wide range of material on A Walk in the Park. Possibly the biggest surprise is the obscure and touching Al Jolson ballad "All My Love." Other highlights include a swinging "How Deep Is the Ocean," her revival of Duke Ellington's obscure "The Lonely Ones," and a fine rendition of "I Concentrate On You." A couple burners would have added variety to this generally satisfying effort, which finds Dena DeRose in subtle but expressive form while accompanied by tasteful playing from bassist Martin Wind and drummer Matt Wilson.

    "Intimacy and Assertive Charm" - Another Winner

    I have never read less- than- stellar reviews any where on the net of Dena and her albums including her latest. In reading the editorial reviews - critics of renown - all acclaiming Dena's superlative talent - voice and piano and arrangements. Dena took some unknown songs (to me) and brought them back alive and made them her own. Instead of rehashing them she made soufletts. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this eclectic album and all her previous winners. Many of these songs she introduced at her sold-out concerts.
