Description

Charleston a Piano Journey on CD

Bio 'db' is a pianist and composer who are uniquely gifted. Her style really does blend jazz, classical and blues. The middle sections of her compositions are generally improvised moments where she really does appear to be weaving in an out of different genres. 'db' grew up with a wonderful musical family. 'Because I took lessons from my mom, I was afforded the opportunity to be in all kinds of musical experiences at a very young age.' While in high school she was able to attend a jazz summer workshop at University of Miami. 'That's all it took and from then on, I was hooked,' she said. She went on to become a piano performance major at Shorter college and then headed back to University of Miami as a Jazz piano major. She eventually ended up playing in jazz trios, top forty dance bands and solo piano performances. Some of her performance venues are the Atlanta Braves World Series, Masters tournament, the Fox 97 band for the oldies concert series, and the opening solo act for 'Buddy Rich' and his band, performances with Peter Noone, Platters, and Drifters. She has also written background musical scores for commercials, industrial videos and directed shows. After some personal tragedies, 'db' has rebounded immersed in writing and recording her music. Because of her varied musical background she is really able to blur the lines between many different styles. 'I used to sit at my solo piano jobs (mostly in hotel lobbies) and make up everything for the 4 hours I was to play. I'm sure that's how my unique solo piano style of playing has evolved'. In addition to her new release, Charleston,' she is currently working on a band/group production style CD that is indeed tropical in flavor and shows off more of her jazz style of playing. 'db'Donna Banks has created her own unforgettable style and takes off on her own journey. The listen truly is lucky enough to travel along!
