Enjoy the Ride
Lisa's long-overdue 5th solo release is a lovely mix of her original tunes and re-imagined covers. Folk-jazz with a twist, it runs the gamut from feel-good favorites to poignant ballads to a song about funky spring water. Produced by Lisa and David Lange (Pearl Django), the CD features the stellar musical talents of Barbara Higbie, Jen Todd, Mel Watson, Dan Mohler, Jason Edwards, Glenn Lorbecki, David Koch, Mr. Lange, and Lisa herself.
The title song, "Enjoy the Ride", is a soaring tribute to to Koch's dear departed father; "I Found Home" was penned for Lisa's own wedding; "If It's Clear" is about a faltering relationship; and "Lithia Water" is a loving tribute to the vile-smelling natural springs in her hometown of Ashland, OR. Lisa covers Cat Stevens ("If You Want to Sing Out, Sing Out"), Nanci Griffith (It's Just Another Morning Here"), The Beatles ("I Should Have Known Better"), CDBaby artist Teresa Chandler ("Life is a Dance"), plus a Peace mashup, and more Lisa faves. Introspective, uplifting, and just plain delightful.
