Departing from her vibey eclectic art-pop to explore classic blues & jazz vocals, Lisa Karp has written, arranged and produced Fucsia Blues with Dr. John co-arranging torch tune 'Why Do I Wait' & jazzy 'Call Home'. He plays on seven of the 11. 'Lisa is one hell of a songwriter and the most original artist I've ever known. It was a good chance for me to do something unique and musically every different thing is there. What I like is that she doesn't think like most singer-songwriters think. She often approaches stuff from left field, and that drives my creative flow as well. Lisa's emergence will give audiences a chance to discover something very fresh.' TOP 12 INDIE PICKS Winter 2005 Independent Songwriter Web-Magazine 'Coupled up with New Orleans the legendary Dr. John, Lisa Karp sings her way to the top of the vocal jazz-blues scene. Her voice is sultry deep and sexy with a smoky feel. It is backed-up by great upright bass and light drums and gorgeous piano. You feel her pain on every note and will shed a tear for such a tormented soul who pours her heart and brain onto these contemporary compositions fit for the bravest and hippest club.' EDITOR'S CHOICE, Smother.net 2/06 'Karp's strong point is her refreshing approach to lyric writing, particularly 'Curve of the Truth' and 'My Life Hotel'. Jazz Times 8/06 'Lisa Karp's unique style will have you captivated...for this sophisticated album...Karp is hot and laid back all in one package. Everything's Broken, a duet with Dr. John, is probably the highlight of the album...I can't get enough of this.' Netrhythms.com 3/06 'An engaging set...tempered with a healthy dose of irony....sultry jazz with an underworld slant.' Subba Cultcha.com 2/06 'Lisa's provocative vocal delivery and introspective lyrics have a way of fusing with your own reminisces and daydreams-making this CD a very personal musical journey. The pairing with Dr. John is a comfortable fit- like sipping a glass of whiskey neat while lounging on the patio as the sun slips below the horizon.' Black Jack Ketchum, WRFG, Atlanta 'Very cool songs- very original.' Rita Houston, Music Director WFUV, NYC 'Spectacular.' [duet 'Everything's Broken'] Joel Dorn, Grammy-winning producer.
