Lisa Bauer’s Moon Song
Alexander Upstairs
12 November 2016

“…Her set was a study in focused emotional dissection, her voice as clear and pure as mountain rainwater.”
Christopher Loudon, Jazz Times.

Vocalist Lisa Bauer brings her new project Moon Song to the Alexander Theatre! Inspired by her connection to the moon cycles, the divine feminine, new life and the power of vocalisation, the performance will feature her composition Moon Suite, selected original compositions as well as tunes by some of Bauer’s favourite, unique American jazz composers and artists. She will be joined by Andrew Lilley on keys, Maxim Starcke on electric bass and Adam Coolsaet on drums.

Lisa Bauer’s music is full of joy. It is also full of soulfulness and sorrow, but her voice is packed with such delicacy that even woe sings like a plucked string. It is this quality that secured her debut album, Finding a New Way, a South African Music Awards nomination as well as glowing reviews from the jazz fraternity. Understated yet urgent, her vocals are spangled with the improvisational essence of jazz, the heartfelt essence of the blues and gospel and mystical riffs. Catch her performing a selection of her own compositions alongside standards from jazz greats such as Lionel Hampton and Dizzy Gillespie. Her ensemble features the cream of Cape-based players.” – Miles Keylock, Mail & Guardian Friday, October 19 to 25 2012
