Vocalist WENDY FOPEANO
Wendy Fopeano was raised in a musical family in Kansas City, Missouri. She was primarily an instrumentalist before she discovered her love of improvising with her voice. She moved to Colorado in 1987 and has sung at festivals, concert halls, and clubs from Dazzle Jazz in Denver to the Oberoi Hotel in Mumbai, India. From 2001 to 2011 she hosted her own jazz show on Denver’s jazz89 KUVO and interviewed a number of jazz greats including: Tom Harrell, Christian McBride, Stanley Clarke and Chick Corea. She has released two CD’s. When There’s Love and ìRaining on the Roses about which famed jazz writer Scott Yanow writes in his book, The Jazz Singers, that Fopeano’s Raining on the Roses CD makes one wonder why she’s not nationally famous.
