ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Singer/songwriter and pianist Lisa Lauren started out playing jazz clubs but got weary of the same old American Songbook songs that everyone else was playing. So she started mixing it up with some Beatles and other pop tunes, to the chagrin of many a jazz club owner. Her bass player talked her into going into the studio and before she knew it her first CD, "what comes around" was getting airplay all over the U.S. and Australia. Miramar offered her a record deal, gave her a little bit of money, then filed Chapter 11 right before her second CD, "my own twist" came out. Now on her own independent label, she has just released a compilation of Beatles songs from her three CD's (and a few recently recorded). The disc features Grammy award winning sax hunk David Sanborn, as well as Steve Rodby (Pat Metheny), Fareed Haque, Willy Porter, Howard Levy, Greg Koch, Neal Alger and several other fab Chicago musicians. Lisa's Beatles arrangements have been generously featured on Terri Hemmert's "Breakfast With the Beatles" show on WXRT (Chicago's Finest Rock) and other Beatles shows around the U.S.

Collected Sounds

Good "covers"
While this is a "cover album", it's really unique. These songs are all done quite differently from the originals. If you weren't paying attention you wouldn't even realize you were listening to Beatles' songs.
It helps that they're in the capable hands of Lisa Lauren.

Lisa REALLY loves the Beatles
She loves them so much, she doesn't skimp on re-interpreting their songs. "The Word" is worth the price alone, but the rest of the album is truly fantastic and original in execution. I heard Lisa on The Mountain Beatles Show in Denver and was totally taken aback by her very unique arrangements, like the sparse "What You're Doing" and phenomenal version of "Love Me Do" with Willy Porter. She gets great emotion out of simple songs and the CD doesn't have a single weak moment!

How could you fault it?
In an eternal quest for Beatles covers I discovered Lisa Lauren and must say that her interpretations of Lennon & McCartney are of a very high standard.
Its a very cool sound,closer to jazz than pop and is forever music.
A voice in control of the songs which she does her way and a
great way to discover the songs which is always the case with the Beatles-whether you like them or not the songs are what speak loudest.
David Sanborn the jazz alto saxist has played on 100s of sessions and was a member of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band so possibly he's more famous than she is at the moment.
What you realise here is that Lisa Lauren has been taught the music of the Beatles who had been long gone before she was even born so it would be her parents who would have been the fans.
Though the music is jazz inflected its also pop music and deserves a wider audience.
Comparisons are really no good here-we all know some of today's biggest girl singers are also the least talented and make their names through controversy but this is the kind of album Linda Ronstadt could have made
