“The mood is intimate as her duo accompaniment…help her keep it quiet and subtle. an album full of love songs, “The Nearness of You” sets the pace with a lazy cadence and rhythm; Lindsley’s simple delivery is delicate and unaffected.“ John Ephland- Downbeat, March issue
Ken Franckling of Jazz Times said of Lisa, “Lindsley’s charming and expressive voice catches your ear because of her natural sense of phrasing, timing and expression. On this trio project, she was fortunate to call on pianist George Mesterhazy, who is a premier accompanist for singers (Shirley Horn, Paula West, Rebecca Parris, Karrin Allyson, among others), and rock-solid bassist Fred Randolph. She makes each standard her own.” All About Jazz
“She sings….simply, presenting the melodies in a relaxed and listener-friendly way. Her exquisitely balanced voice is what gives Lindsley license for such straight and compelling interpretation, interpretation that would be banal and boring in less talented voices.” C. Michael Baily
“Lisa Lindsley‘s debut CD, ‘Everytime We Say Goodbye’ is a fine roll of silk filled with colors, light and compassion. Lindsley is blossoming into a wonderful jazz singer, she brings life and emotion into anything she sings. Her light,fresh sound is, at times, reminiscent of Blossom Dearie…Her playful and humorous performances are delightful and highly recommended and her dedication to the music is paying off big time as she turns into a real jazz singer.” Hermando Bossett
George Mesterhazy was a brilliant grammy-nominated jazz pianist who played on countless albums supporting the biggest names in show business. For years he was pianist for the great Shirley Horn after diabetes made it so she could no longer play the piano. He performed at venues around the world and had a club in Cape May, New Jersey where he ran the Marion Inn while still finding time to tour around the world and do what he loved most, music.
Fred Randolph is currently the leader of The Fred Randolph Quintet and has played around the Bay Area as well as the World Music Festival in Shanghai, Vallejo Jazz Festival, San Jose Jazz Festival, and Fillmore Street Jazz Festival.
