READERS DIGEST CONDENSED VERSION:

"Markley has more depth control and beauty to her voice in a live concert setting than most vocalists get in a studio. Driving that voice is a soul of wit and intelligence and a heart of gold." --Paul Slavens, KERA Dallas

Reared on big band and swing, Lisa Markley started her musical journey as a trombonist, finally laying it down (in favor of a more vocal journey) after graduating from University of North Texas.

While at North Texas she studied composition, performed in the lab bands and sang in the Jazz Singers. She defies categorization in pursuit of the perfect song.

"...another talent of Lisa Markley...a remarkable ability to interpret new songs, an adroit rarity...I'm awe struck and teary eyed." --D*** Crockett, "The Voice" 88.7fm, Sacramento CA

Weakness: ?
CD Review:Lisa Markley, a singer, songwriter, and graduate from the University of North Texas with a degree in music composition, sent me the type of project that was made for introspective, rainy days. Characterized by sparse, organic arrangements that can be ingested like a breath of fresh air, this CD is the perfect remedy for over-produced music.

Her lead, and title track, "One Word," conjures up memories of Roberta Flack’s "If Ever I Saw Your Face" in tone and temperament, but will also evoke musical memories of Sarah McLachlan with her emotive vocal phrasing. Other standout tracks include the burlesque, "Song For Henry," the jazzy, up-tempo, flute-driven "New Jersey Sunset," and the sexy, "Adagio." It’s tough to pinpoint the “most commercial” song on this project because it’s not a commercial CD. I reviewed it because each song comprises the many good parts of a greater whole, and should be listened to by Jazz, Folk and Blues lovers on “repeat” for maximum affect. Enjoyable; that’s the one word which best describes Lisa Markley’s latest project.

have a great summer--and we'll see you down the road!
Lisa & Bruce

Hi Blazing banjo babe :o) You must've received my ESP message. There was a 13#11 in it to catch your attention! :o)
Things have been kind of loud in ET! We finally found a great bass player and excellent drummer and have been playing jazz and having fun. I'm working on the jazz piano chops more than writing. I hope life is groovin' along for you and that a real time hang is in our future. Have a beautiful holiday week and I'm sending all the best your way.

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN...

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!

Buster Williams
