Not long ago the songs on this CD were merely mute markings on a score sheet. Only when Lisa Hindmarsh graciously agreed to premiere them did they come alive. With the exception of "For You" none had been performed before. No one knows better than I how fortunate these songs are (and I am)that Lisa acquiesced. Those of you hearing her for the first time will concur with the many admirers already in her following that her talent, skill and interpretive genius are extraordinary. She is a musical alchemist whose rare ability and high standards transfom notes and syllables into golden strains of mesmerizing sound. And with her exquisite sensitivity these sounds become compelling expressions of genuine longing. Lisa has other recordings listed with CDBaby.com which listeners will enjoy.
This CD is also about the musicians, especially Michael Frank, the arranger and pianist, and Steve Beskrone, Tony Salicandro and Frank Gattis - wizards all!
