Rosana Eckert

With smooth sounds, dynamic spontaneity, exciting rhythms, and a selfless musical sincerity, Rosana Eckert embraces and captivates her listeners, taking them on a musical journey that is often described as joyous, breathtaking, and inspiring. Her acclaimed debut CD, At the End of the Day, introduced her to the jazz world not only as a vocalist, but also as a creative composer and arranger. The CD was praised as “an occasion for celebration” by AllAboutJazz.com and “a superior debut.” by Cadence Magazine, and it was a finalist for Best New Jazz Album in the 2006 Independent Music Awards. Her newest CD, Small Hotel, once again showcases her knack for storytelling and her ability to breathe new life into beloved standards with her contemporary style. Small Hotel includes liner notes and a guest appearance by legendary trumpeter Marvin Stamm as well as contributions from renowned arranger Michele Weir and the incomparable Christian McBride on bass.
