About Lisa

Lisa Rich’s Long As You’re Living can be thought of as the comeback of the year. The singer’s first new recording since ill health forced her to stop performing in 1991, this rather remarkable album finds the jazz vocalist not only in prime form but enthusiastically singing with adventure, daring, swing, and a deep understanding of the lyrics that she interprets. Produced and inspired by the late great singer Jay Clayton, Long As You’re Living features Lisa Rich (along with pianist Marc Copland, bassist Drew Gress, and trumpeter Dave Ballou) performing colorful and often-adventurous versions of such pieces as two Abbey Lincoln compositions (the title cut and “Throw It Away”), Horace Silver’s “Lonely Woman,” Joe Henderson’s “Isotope,” a classic rendition of “A Timeless Place” (“The Peacocks”), Thelonious Monk’s “Ask Me Now,” and “Bye Bye Blackbird.” The release of this highly enjoyable album lets the world know that Lisa Rich is back!
