A Studio Is A Studio

A snap during set up for rehearsal in my husband's art studio.



Here's a little live video from our show with Justin Bransford on bass and me and Jesse Vernier from Cords and Strings. This was our first outing on this material. Here I am dipping my toe in the waters of singing in Portuguese. I'm looking forward to exploring more lyrics in this poetic, liquid language of love. Enjoy, Lisa

So Many Stars & Corcovado

It was a lot of fun singing these love songs to the stars and sky on one of the windiest days I have ever experienced! It was so windy the sky was red with dust and dirt, with gusts up to 65 mph. I had to smile to myself as I came to the lyrics "the wind is filled with songs, so many songs." After the show, the night was still. The stars shone with a brilliance and clarity in a sky scrubbed clean by the wind. The moon, a mere sliver slung low, yielded to the dazzling display of the now silent night.

Stuff People Say About Us

One of my favorite comments that has come up after our last couple of shows is that people feel like they have been transported to New York. Part of that is coming from taking on music from Broadway musicals, but part of it is coming from a certain feeling you get in New York. Dark little clubs where jazz players explore the limits of their instruments and the pulse of the city is all around, upstairs, downstairs, down the hall, just outside the door - it's a vibe - an energy - moments of clarity transcending chaos. Something magical is in the air here and we're hearing it and bringing it out to play and share with you. Hope you can feel it, too. xo Lisa










Dindi

Here we are taking Dindi out for a spin. I'm really looking forward to the evolution of this piece for us. I've just begun to sing a portion of the lyrics in the original Portuguese. Many, many thanks to my Brazilian friends Raquel and Alex for sitting with me and coaxing the rich and complex sounds of their native language out of me! Believe me, they deserve accolades! They are not my first Brazilian friends. Nor are they the first to encourage me to sing in their beautiful language, but it has taken decades for me to attempt this in public. Now, that I've dipped my toe in these foreign waters, I'm emboldened to jump in and take a deeper dive. Beinjinos, Lisa
