about just for once

Just For Once is Lisa's long awaited debut album, made possible by just the right people coming into her life at just the right time.  Lisa met Claude McKnight (founder/lead tenor of Take 6) in 2013, when she had an opportunity to "sit in" with Take 6 on stage at a local venue.  Three years later, after being impressed over a few Skype voice lessons, Claude became her long term vocal coach.  In 2014, Lisa took a business card from pianist John di Martino (Freddie Cole, Janis Siegel, Paquito D'Rivera) when he happened to be in town playing for another vocalist.  A year later, after a practice room jam session, John became her musical director.  With the combined expertise of these two artists, Lisa suddenly found herself positioned to realize her lifelong dream to record.

Three years of "love" have gone into sculpting this offering, drawing from standards deep in Lisa's repertoire and sprinkled with some new ones she has always wanted to sing.  The arrangements wrap around her voice magnificently and Lisa 's performances go to the very heart of each song.  Timeless and timely, just for you . . .
