PORTSMOUTH, N.H., April 26, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club Features 2x-GRAMMY® Award-Winning Singer LISA FISCHER and GRAND BATON on Wednesday May 31 at 7:30 P.M. The 2013 Oscar-Winning film “Twenty Feet from Stardom” (“Best Documentary”) altered the course of Lisa Fischer‘s musical journey, telling her story, with clips of her legendary duets with Sting as well as with Mick Jagger on “Gimme Shelter.”
“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.”
— MINNEAPOLIS STAR TRIBUNE
“She brought down the house in the single best show I’ve seen in the many years I’ve visited Birdland.”
— NEW YORK TIMES
The film left audiences eager to see and hear more, so Lisa took the chance to set out on her own reinventing classic songs with her co-conspirators JC Maillard and Grand Baton. Lisa Fischer and Grand Baton’s organic fusion of Caribbean psychedelic soul and jazzy progressive rock ignited Lisa’s flexibility and freedom of expression, awakening her lifelong desire to make music that heals but still rocks the house. Grand Baton was founded by French Composer, Arranger, Guitarist, Pianist, Singer & Songwriter Jean-Cristophe Maillard.
Lisa Fischer joined The Rolling Stones for their 1989 Steel Wheels tour and continued to grace their stage for the next 26 years. While Lisa Fischer’s range is legendary, her greatest gift is the ability to connect, to reach the hearts of her listeners. Raised in the Fort Greene neighborhood of Brooklyn, she emerged from New York’s fervent studio scene in the early 1980’s, sang for two decades with legendary vocalist Luther Vandross, and released the album ‘So Intense’, earning her first GRAMMY® Award (“Best R&B Performance”) with the song “How Can I Ease The Pain.”
