O’s Notes: Donna’s journey leading up to this debut recording has been an unusual adventure. Her brief biography in the liner notes is worth the price of the CD alone! Byrne’s experiences come out when she sings bringing character to each selection. She has performed live for many years in Boston and NY clubs and developed a following with both audiences and musicians. Scott Hamilton (sax), Bucky Pizzarelli (g), Tim Ray (p), Jim Gwin (d) and her husband, bassist Marshall Wood back her up on a nice session.
