Celebrating the release of Lisa B’s seventh record “Reverberant: Poems & Music,” which joins the two strands of Lisa B’s work, vocal jazz and poetry, in riveting ways. Also featuring tunes from Lisa’s 2018 record “I Get A Kick: Cole Porter Reimagined” and other favorites such as “Joe Williams Died Walking/Every Day I Have the Blues.”



“Only the multi-talented jazz singer, songwriter and poet Lisa B has been weaving the kind of ‘must pay attention to every word’ storytelling magic that we hear on ‘Reverberant: Poems and Music’ throughout her unique 20-year career…The highlights are thoughtful, piercing homages to Billie Holiday (a medley of spoken word…and “Lover Man”)…Cecil Taylor…and Max Roach.” – The JW Vibe

“A singer, spoken-word artist and poet with an incisive way of chronicling situations, memories and emotions…a pliable, expressive voice dipped in blue.” – Jazz Times

“Bernstein reinterprets the [Cole] Porter Songbook… to magnify the American Treasure that is these songs… displays her total command of the material.” – All About Jazz

The Guaranteed Fair Wage Fund’s subsidy of this date allows us to pay a “fair wage” of $150 per musician tonight, 50% more than our regular guarantee on a Saturday night. The Guaranteed Fair Wage Fund is a project of Jazz in the Neighborhood, established with the aim of raising gigging musicians’ wage standards so they can afford to stay in this very expensive city and region. Your cover charge tonight and your tax-deductible contributions to the Bird & Beckett Cultural Legacy Project make it possible for us to do our part.



"It is in doubt and not in faith that the salvation of the world is to be found. Faith is a delusion and a snare: a pitfall, a prison. It intimidates the intellect. With fear of eternal damnation religion crushes intellectual activity; with hero worship it destroys individuality; with hopes for the beyond it prevents the growth of ideals for the present. It makes of us a race of intellectual cowards; it changes but little if any our daily conduct toward each other. But doubt sets us free."

-- Job Harriman, 1902
