Best Songs: One Word, Song For Henry, New Jersey Sunset
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!
