Length of Days 

Deanna’s 2006 release on ArtistShare. With Donny McCaslin, Dave Ambrosio, and Vince Cherico.

Witkowski’s sheer musicality is abundantly evident, from a well-developed sense of line and harmony in composition, to the airily individual takes on standards like “Hi-Lili, Hi-Lo,” “In the Still of the Night” and “I’m Beginning to See the Light.”
-Ray Comiskey, Irish Times

Wide Open Window

Deanna’s second recording in 2003 was released on the heels of her win at the Great American Jazz Piano Competition, and led to an appearance on Marian McPartland’s Piano Jazz and on NPR’s Weekend Edition Sunday. With Donny McCaslin, Jonathan Paul, and Tom Hipskind.

Wide Open Window will refuse to allow you to file it away and forget about. It’s too different and too vital. Bravo, Ms. Witkowski.  -Ken Egbert, Jazz Now

Deanna’s spirit- and her spirituality – come through on this consummate debut album, and that spirit is astonishing.  -Don Glasgo, Jazz Improv
