ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Here is an opportunity to hear and see the singular vocalist/composer Lisa Sokolov solo live in concert. Her work has been lauded internationally with dozens of "Best of the Year" commendations including Downbeat Magazine's coveted 5 star Masterpiece and Best of the Year citation for her recording "Presence".

To set the scene, it is November 2006, in a large concert hall in the German Alps. A conference called, "The Reality of the Soul", has presented inspired talks by a Nobel Prize winning physicist, a renowned physician, an economist, a Jungian analyst and a respected spiritual teacher, each addressing the question at hand. At Saturday night's concert, we hear the music and experience the presence of Lisa Sokolov. This DVD is a window into this extraordinary moment.

Lisa Sokolov is a frontline groundbreaking New York jazz vocalist, improviser and composer. She is an Associate Artist Professor and legendary educator at NYU Tisch School of the Arts and at Institutes Internationally. She is the inspiration for many young singers on the scene today. Her work embraces the best of new music, free and straight ahead jazz. Her recordings angel Rodeo, Lazy Afternoon and Presence have all received Best CD of the Year citations and press kudos. DownBeat magazine cites her last CD “Presence” as 5 stars "Masterpiece" and Best Release of 2004 (the only new CD to get this acclaim)

”As far removed stylistically from the reigning royalty of female jazz vocalists as John Coltrane is from Grover Washington, Lisa Sokolov …exceptionally expressive, dramatic, ecstatic …playful …highly compelling …a tour de force …masterful …stunning, life-affirming This is jazz vocalizing filled with passion and commitment.” five stars ***** DownBeat Magazine

2005 DownBeat critics poll adds Sokolov onto their rising star vocalist list.

“Lisa Sokolov is a wildwoman of jazz. Nothing is predictable when she sings. And Sokolov can be compared to no one else. For Sokolov, a true original whose singing involves the consideration of previously unconsidered possibilities, as well as their means of expression, must be accepted on her own terms. There are rewards to spending time with Sokolov’s music. Indeed, Sokolov’s talent possesses such force, even when she holds back…An extraordinary singer… .” jazzreview.com

“emotionally powerful encounters…a singing experience that sucks you in like a cyclone and then hurtles and lifts you higher and higher… compelling… . Being in the Presence of Lisa Sokolov will alter your conception of the female jazz vocalist.” All about Jazz New York

“master singer/improviser Lisa Sokolov again was brilliant at Vision Festival 2003, causing me to again pull out her disc angel Rodeo, and again got goosebumps from her sound and her ideas. You should get it anyway you can. It’s different from and as near perfect a disc as Jeanne Lee’s Nuba or Cassandra Wilson’s Blue Skies.” Steve Koenig Jumps Arts Journal

"Here's an artist that makes genres disappear. Sokolov hammers together a unique box of sounds on an instrument she has developed to great effect...her voice breathes fire."
CMJ



“A visionary improviser and a strikingly original innovator… Sokolov can truly be said to be pushing the envelope of the jazz idiom into the Post Modern Era.”
Royal Stokes OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS
