Album Notes
Jazz Times writes "LISA IS AN UTTER ORIGINAL: Blessed with superlative power, control and range. Engelken can, as mood requires, be as soft as dew or as intense as a sleet storm; her interpretive instincts are astounding.”

CARAVAN features 10 of Lisa's innovative arrangements that breathe new life into jazz standards (by Ellington, Porter, Carmichael) & boldly transform contemporary tunes (by Billy Idol, Joni Mitchell) into the jazz idiom.

CARAVAN includes "From the Earth", a new lyric version of FREDDIE HUBBARD’s jazz-funk classic Red Clay. The legendary trumpeter personally reviewed and gave Lisa his blessing to record it.

Engelken describes CARAVAN as "10 snapshots of Love: each capturing a unique phase of movement through that journey." The album demonstrates Lisa's insistence that the song’s story be conveyed not only through lyric, but through harmony and arrangement.

“…Engelken doesn’t just sing a song, she devours it! Part freight train, part junkyard trombone, the tumbleweed Engelken alternately locomotes and floats through tunes. Her operatic and theatrical training couldn’t polish off the rough edges as she wields a unique vocal style as tonic as a New York cab ride: intensified by pure joy, then crankiness, sadness, then irony.”

Geordie Van Der Bosch

A beautiful album full of originality.
Featuring creative arrangements of classics and exciting original compositions, the dark timbre of Lisa's vocals makes Caravan a wonderfully moody album with a touch of noir.
