About The Artist: I was raised in Canandaigua NY, educated at Radcliffe College, University of London, Lesley College, and CU Denver, lived and taught elementary school in the USA, London and Moscow, and moved to Denver in 1987 to work for Martin Marietta. I played classical piano duets and chamber music everywhere I went, and still enjoy an all day session with my friends. I have two wonderful daughters. Anne Pell is a piano teacher and jazz pianist with her own trio, and was the force who inspired me to start studying jazz piano. Jenny Pell had her own business manufacturing and selling yurts, plays mandolin and guitar, and is in Costa Rica now working on a permaculture plantation. I started composing while working with lively jazz piano teacher Holly Holverson, who plays with the Freddie-Henchi band, and taking classes in jazz improv at CU Denver with guitarist Paul Musso. I joined Denver’s Swallow Hill Choir at its first meeting, and soon was creating original songs just for them. My friends tell me stories about their wonderful children and fabulous, intelligent grandchildren, and soon a song appears.
