Live In Copenhagen 1980


Reissued on the 2 cd digipack Dorothy Donegan: Strength – Energy – Imagination

A dynamic performer, Donegan steals the show wherever she performs. It’’s amazing that her name is not more recognized. In this spirited set, recorded at Jazzhus Slukefter, Copenhagen in 1980, she sticks to standards, but brings out new life and fresh ideas from the veteran tunes. With this release there’s still a chance for Dorothy Donegan to become at last an overnight success! As one can hear on this frequently powerful performance, she certainty deserves it.
