Saddle up for a Wild West adventure! Annie Oakley is the best shot around, supporting her little brother and sisters by selling the game she hunts, but when she's discovered by Col. Buffalo Bill, he persuades her to join his Wild West Show. In a heartbeat, Annie falls in love with the show's veteran sharpshooter, Frank Butler, and soon eclipses him as the show's main attraction. Butler hightails it off to join a rival show, but is ultimately pitted against Annie in a final shoot-out. This rousing 1946 Broadway musical comedy features the classic Irving Berlin hits "Anything You Can Do," "Doin' What Comes Naturally" and "There's No Business Like Show Business!" Learn More

This review would have been four stars if Denise Donatelli had performed throughout, as noted by others. Marvelous voice, stage presence. I would have also preferred she sing more standards. Acoustics at the Birch were excellent.
The sax player who accompanied her performances was superb as well. Keezer is a marvelous musician, but I didn't enjoy his compositions.
Part of the Jazz in North Park Series
Presented by Holly Hofmann and Lyric Opera San Diego
Born in Allentown, Pennsylvania, Denise Donatelli was drenched in music from an early age. She has performed in jazz clubs and jazz festivals across the country. Her first CD, In the Company of Friends, was released in 2005 on the Jazzed Media label and her 2008 release, What Lies Within, on the Savant Records label, debuted on the National Jazz Week Chart at #15 and peaked at #11. Her upcoming release with pianist and composer/arranger Geoffrey Keezer, is scheduled for an spring 2010 release.
Geoffrey Keezer, no stranger to San Diego where he now resides, is an immensely talented pianist who, at 17, joined the great Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers, then went on to perform with Art Farmer, Ray Brown, Christian McBride, Jim Hall and countless others. His own projects cover a wide range of musical expression from acoustic jazz to electronica to diverse world-music collaborations including his 2009 Grammy-nominated CD Aurea. Joining the quartet for this performance is San Diego’s favorite guitarist, Peter Sprague.
