From the very first note she sings on Everytime We Say Goodbye, it’s clear that Lisa Lindsley is a true jazz singer. This is made even more clear by the fact that the album came together without a rehearsal and on the strength of pianist George Mesterhazy calling Lindsley and saying “What are you doing this Saturday?”. The result of the interplay between Lindsley, Mesterhazy and bassist Fred Randolf is pure lightning-in-a-bottle magic.  Together, they take on the songbooks of Hoagy Carmichael, Billie Holiday, Ray Noble and Antonio Carlos Jobim in an engrossing musical foray. If great performances like this can result from impromptu sessions, then viva la impromptu.
