Wouldn't It Be Loverly?

Lisa Lindsley & La Belle Epoque

In cart Not available Out of stock

One spring afternoon outside of Paris, jazz vocalist Lisa Lindsley and French pianist Laurent Marode discovered an unexpected musical bond, and the material for La Belle Epoque’s latest release.

With her third CD, Lindsley invites listeners to surrender to her smoky soprano, while her vocal command and deft timing assure they will be delighted they did. Jeff Chambers’ lush bass lines are a perfect interplay with Mourad Benhammou’s dexterous brush work, Laurent Marode’s melodic and seductive piano and Esaie Cid’s lustrous flute and brass performances.

"After several listenings, I'm completely seduced by her sultry & sensual performances, her perfect enunciation and crystal clear voice; and I keep repeating the first tracks over and over again. Bassist Jeff Chambers shines throughout the session, but is beyond words specially on the title track and on the ballad "The House Is Haunted," with his fat sound and inspired phrasing evoking memories of Ron Carter. Reedman Esaie Cid comments her statements sometimes on alto sax ("The House Is Haunted"), sometimes on flute (the bouncing version of "Star Eyes") or clarinet ("Mellow Yellow".) Drummer Mourad Benhammou also shines on "Star Eyes" as well as on "Heat Wave," showcasing his creative brushwork on "Skylark's Song" -- with a perfect interaction between Lindsley's warm voice and Cid's flute with occasional humming effects a la Roland Kirk and Jeremy Steig -- and "The House Is Haunted." Pianist Laurent Marode is flawless, soloing always with impeccable taste, and adding a funky groove to "Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friends."
