FAST-RISING SMOOTH JAZZ PIANIST STEPS OUT IN HIGH STYLE, BRINGING HIP ENERGY AND A FASHIONABLE VIBE TO HER NEW SINGLE, ‘HIGH HEELS (LA VERSION)’ FEAT. JEFF RYAN
MIAMI, October 27, 2020 (Newswire.com) – Hot on the heels of her #1 Billboard smash “Listen to This” and her follow-up hit, “What Cha’ Know About That”, Lisa Addeo brings high style with her latest single, “High Heels (LA version)”. The melodically effervescent and rhythmically explosive tune features dynamic Smooth Jazz saxophonist Jeff Ryan. Available everywhere October 30.
Lisa opens with her freewheeling piano, ushered in by a compelling groove. Ryan’s blazing horn kicks in and they scale new heights with scorching chemistry and musical rapport. Lisa’s vision is to inspire people to focus on feeling good amidst the ongoing challenges of an anxious 2020. Add the irrepressible musical pocket of Adam Hawley (guitars) Mel Brown (bass) and Eric Valentine (drums) and the sizzle is relentless.
“Everything is about energy.” Lisa says, “To me, the song is fun and inviting. This is a strange, difficult time, and I want to give people something to feel good about. “High Heels” was written before COVID-19, but the timing of the single is perfect in that it embraces and boosts people’s spirits and summons them into a “ya’ know what? D*** the Torpedoes!” state of mind. I’ve always felt music is an oasis from reality and a reminder of the strength and resolve we all really have. I am so grateful to everyone involved for bringing their gifts to this song.”
On a lighter note, she adds, “There’s another song on my album called ‘Little Black Dress’ which is also the name of my record company. I guess it’s my female DNA. Sometimes we girls need some new high heels to go with that dress, or a new pair of earrings. It’s all about the outfit”, she muses. “Let me just say that there will always be room for another pair of high heels in my closet!”
The title song from Listen to This, written by Lisa and #1 Billboard artist, guitarist and producer Nils, became a self-fulfilling prophecy as the first new track of 2020 to reach #1 on every national Smooth Jazz chart including Billboard and Mediabase.
Miami-based Lisa is a veteran recording artist and performer with seven albums in a multitude of genres. Eleven tracks from her 1997 release, the Frank Sinatra tribute In a Heartbeat, are in rotation on SiriusXM’s Siriusly Sinatra and selections from her seasonal collections Spirit of the Holidays and Comfort & Joy receive airplay on their Holiday Traditions channel. Her discography includes a ‘live’ concert album Live at the Kerr, several solo piano albums, a chill recording Whispering Souls, and her most recent vocal standards album, A Kind of Daydream.
