Cheryl Fisher CD Release
Jazz vocalist Cheryl Fisher is one of those rare artists who, as soon as she begins to sing, transforms the room and turns a chatty crowd into a rapt audience. Her commanding stage presence, assurance and vocal mastery transcend artistic mediums. Cheryl is as comfortable performing in a small intimate setting as she is outdoors or in large concert halls.
For her sixth CD, Canadian vocalist Cheryl Fisher has recorded an album unique in both its repertoire and her approach. Purposefully chosen to be on the quieter side, Fisher puts a personal stamp on these beautiful, rarely heard songs, applying her musicianship and gift for vocal interpretation in celebration of love, or the mourning of love lost. Although they come from the era of the Great American Songbook, Fisher has given them a modern jazz treatment with the brilliant accompaniment of pianist/arranger John Toomey, the singular Portland guitarist John Stowell, the bass & drum team of Jeff Johnson & John Bishop, and acclaimed woodwind artist Eric Allison. "Concept albums aren't what I usually do, but sometimes you just want to sit by the fireplace, have a glass of wine, put on an album and let it play right through, letting its mellow mood merge with your own."
