Lisa Fischer & Grand Baton
May 31 @ 7:30 pm$10.00 – $75.00
“Lisa Fischer in concert is addictive. Every performance is so enriching, so exciting, so transcendent that you want more. With remarkable vocal range and vocabulary, Fischer can sing soul, jazz, rock, gospel, pop, folk and classical with equal facility and authority. She often mixes styles in the same song, sometimes in the same vocal line. Her approach tends to be intimate, artful and almost meditative, accompanied by her interpretive dancing, but she also can cut loose and funk with fierceness and rock with abandon,” raves the MINNEAPOLIS STAR TRIBUNE.
2x-GRAMMY® Award-Winning Artist LISA FISCHER & GRAND BATON return to Jimmy's Jazz & Blues Club! After four decades of featured background singing with icons like Luther Vandross, The Rolling Stones, Chaka Khan, Tina Turner, and Nine Inch Nails, Ms. Lisa Fischer takes center stage with her own humble, heartfelt song. The 2013 Best Documentary Oscar-Winning film "Twenty Feet from Stardom" altered the course of Lisa's musical journey, telling her story, with clips of her legendary duets with Sting as well as with Mick Jagger on "Gimme Shelter." While Lisa's range is legendary, her greatest gift is the ability to connect, to reach the hearts of her listeners. Lisa sang for two decades with legendary vocalist Luther Vandross, and released 'So Intense', earning her first "Best R&B Performance" GRAMMY® with "How Can I Ease The Pain". She joined the Rolling Stones for their 1989 Steel Wheels tour and continued to grace their stage for the next 26 years!
