Vocalist, Recording Artist and Educator
“You will find excellence on many levels. Pitch, tone, improvisation song selection and arrangement-sheer talent, too”
“Lisa’s voice is a great instrument”
“… the complaint has often been lodged that no young jazz singers are coming up to take over from the Fitzgeralds and Vaughans. Every once in a while a singer such as Lisa Rich will come along and give the lie to this theory."
Los Angeles Times
“…the performances on Highwire are timeless and still sound fresh…Lisa Rich’s finest recording and is easily recommended.”
Jazz journalist/historian and author of 11 books including The Jazz Singers and Jazz On Record 1917-76
Highwire is vocalist Lisa Rich’s third release and features pianists Marc Copland and Dave Kane, bassist Drew Gress and drummer Michael Smith. On the disc, recorded back in 1987, finds Rich interpreting five Chick Corea songs as well as songs by Ralph Towner, Duke Ellington, Ornette Coleman, Loonis McGlohon, and the standard “We’ll Be Together Again."
My career and new CD are part of writer Tom Cunniffe’s piece entitled “Divergent Career Paths” at JazzHistory Online.
