What happens when a saxophonist from New Zealand connects with a singer/songwriter/ guitarist born in Kinross South Africa and they interpret soul singer Anthony Hamilton? You get Best of Me. I’m tough on cover songs, but this one’s in the pocket. Andrea Lisa has put her magic on Ralph Johnson’s Co-Swagit and contributed to Kirk Whalum’s Humanite.
Her guitar strumming and Alex Churchill's saxophone create a sounds you won’t get tired of. If you don’t believe me, tune in to Jazz at Sundown with Debb Moore on Jazz 91.9 WCLK and hear for yourself.
David C. Linton is Jazz 91.9 WCLK Program Director and host of Serenade To The City, heard Monday-Friday at 10pm.
