Lisette Spinnler Quintet - Basel 2005 - now on dime

Here's a beautiful set of music by one of the most talented young jazz singers of the Swiss scene, Lisette Spinnler from Basle:

It really was quite a surprise for me to hear this show on radio - I did have no expectations whatsoever and it was an extremely pleasant surprise! Spinnler has a beautiful voice and does lots of improvising, the band is great, with pianist Colin Vallon providing some beautiful compositions as well. The music of this group - it's a group, really, not just a singer with a backing band - has influences from African music and isn't afraid of playing (with) beautiful melodies. A great show, in my opinion!
