Flood of Emotion
This is Lizabeth's first CD. This recording has two thirds of The Shirley Horn trio playing on it. The great Steve Novosel on Bass and Steve Williams on drums, plus the wonderful Ron Holloway on saxaphone. Lizabeth recorded with Ron on his CD GROOVE UPDATE, on Fantasy records, and wanted to have him add his talents on 'Flood of Emotion'. Larry Willis produced this project, he has been a major influence in the world of jazz, and his arrangements are beautifully shown on this CD. Lizabeth is a native Washingtonian and has been performing in the area for 25 years, playing and singing on the Hill, in nightclubs and Hotels and festivals. You can see her at the Marquee Lounge at the Shoreham Hotel Thursdays through Saturdays, and she is also a member of the Choral Arts Society of Washington D.C., singing at the Kennedy Center a dozen times a year. Lizabeth started playing piano at 4, was classically trained in both piano and voice, but decided in her teens that she loved the music of tin pan alley, blues and jazz. She has a repertoire of over 2000 songs, but her love is writing music and lyrics, and this CD showcases her talents as a composer.
