Austrian-born but New York-based Elisabeth Lohninger is a first rate singer and talented composer. Backed by a superb rhythm section, Lohninger delivers impressive performances on Beneath Your Surface. Singing in English, French, and German, Lohninger displays an extraordinary stylistic fluency and versatility. ...
Beneath Your Surface is, simply put, one of the most satisfying jazz vocal recordings of this year. Elisabeth Lohninger manages to swing and make you think at the same time, and that is no easy feat." William Grimm, Allaboutjazz.com
No cliche ridden heavy amateur vocal recitation here!! Elisabeth sings the song!!! It's hard to define Lohninger's artistry except to say: Her voice is unusual, hypnotic, & strangely attractive. And talk about your inherent infusion of solid viable musical inspiration??... She gets this from her consummate sidemen, who create the wonderful platform upon which Elisabeth is able to ply her vocal wares. Succinctly stated: This CD project is a killer!" George W. Carroll, ejazznews.com
With a haunting alto of suggestiveness and controlled force, Elisabeth Lohninger ... combines intimations of sensuality with poetic observation, artistic sensibility with the compression of meaning within the songs. With subtlety and grace, [she] has developed her own persona as a singer, unlike that of any other..."(Bill Donaldson, Jazz Improv Magazine)
Her CD Beneath Your Surface" is available at Tower Records Village (Broadway @ West 4th Street), www.cdbaby.com & www.lohninger.net
