Jazz At The Arsenal - The Lisa Thorson Quartet

Event Date: 
Monday, April 14, 2014 - 7:30pm

Blackbox Theatre - featuring Berklee faculty artists & hosted by John Baboian

Jazz vocalist and Berklee College of Music professor Lisa Thorson has released her sixth recording as a leader, Lisa Thorson Quartet LIVE.  Lisa Thorson Quartet LIVE documents an evening of music recorded live at Scullers Jazz Club, Boston in 2009.  It celebrates the collaboration, kinship and musical interplay of 20+ years between Lisa, voice, Tim Ray, piano, David Clark, bass and George Schuller, drums.

“Nothing can replace the energy, the charge, the surprise, the exchange of ideas and the roller coaster of improvising.  I could not have been luckier than to have had this opportunity to capture the work of our quartet in this night of music.” Lisa

Lisa’s first recording in over ten years, Lisa Thorson Quartet LIVE follows the success and critical acclaim of the duo recording ‘Out to Sea’ and Thorson’s quintet releases, ‘Resonance’, produced by music legend Gunther Schuller GM Recordings, and ‘From This Moment On’, Brownstone Recordings.  The new updated website features music, education, video and more.

"At a time when too many performers seem satisfied with the mere replication of melody (often resulting in pop albums that claim to be jazz), Lisa Thorson uncompromisingly seeks the essence of song, the cante jondo.  When she sings lyrics, she lives them; when she improvises, she inhabits the identity of emotion. What more could one ask of an artist?" - Dr. Sascha Feinstein, Author/Critic/Radio Host 617-923-8487
