LISA SOKOLOV QUARTET AT SWEET RHYTHM
Tuesday September 20 8pm and 10pm Sweet Rhythm 88 7th Ave and Bleecker St., NYC reservations: (212) 255-3626
Lisa Sokolov - Vocals and keyboards, with Cameron Brown on bass, John DiMartino on piano, and Gerry Hemingway on drums.
Lisa premieres new material from her upcoming recording as well as selections from her widely acclaimed CD Presence"
Presence" won 15 Best CD of 2004 citations including Downbeat Magazine 5 Star Masterpiece".
As far removed stylistically from the reigning royalty of female jazz vocalists as John Coltrane is from Grover Washington, Lisa Sokolov fills every moment of Presence with just that. Exceptionally expressive, dramatic, and ecstatic... a tour de force, masterful and life-affirming. This is jazz vocalizing filled with passion and commitment." DownBeat
The most impressive single song I've heard this year, or damn near any other year, is Lisa Sokolov's brighter-than-a-thousand-suns detonation of Oh What a Beautiful Morning." [Sokolov] defines a dimension in vocal performance that hardly anyone ever dares to enter: dramatic, visceral, blood chilling." Village Voice - Best of 2004
This is music moving at the velocity of a bullet, creativity and invention years ahead of its time. Ms. Sokolov is changing the face of jazz vocals" All About Jazz
