White Sails, Blue Skies (WAVE FILES)

Tanya Dennis

Tanya Dennis' unique style of "Tropical Smooth Jazz" “WHITE SAILS BLUE SKIES” is a manifestation of all the years of listening to these genres and 10 years on the water.

A little over a decade ago after a series of life-changing events, I bought Winterhawk, a 50-foot sailboat. I then ventured out to fulfill a long-anticipated bucket –list plan to sail the Caribbean and the Pacific Northwest, to reinvent my life musically and personally.

“WHITE SAILS BLUE SKIES” is the child of that journey.

It truly is a work created for water people…… music to sail by.
