In that time, the creative pair have contributed to the urban musical terrain by running their Lofish Recording Studios until 2015 and releasing a series of well-received recordings. These include: Beneath ...

Elisabeth Lohninger: Eleven Promises

Read "Eleven Promises" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

New York-based Elisabeth Lohninger and Walter Fischbacher have evolved into a solid power-center in the city's jazz community. They operated Lofish Recording Studios until 2015, when gentrification forced them to close door. The pair have been prolific with recordings, including: Beneath the Surface (Lofish, 2004); The Only Way Out is Up (Lofish, 2007); Songs of Love ...

Elisabeth Lohninger & Walter Fischbacher: Ballads in Blue

Read "Ballads in Blue" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Often art results from the most difficult of circumstances. I suppose it has something to do with that cliché, ..."when life gives one lemons...make lemonade." It would be naïve to believe that just anyone could make lemonade. It takes guts, talent, thought, and often, not just a little luck. Such are the conditions surrounding the recording ...

C. Michael Bailey's Best Recordings of 2013

Read "C. Michael Bailey's Best Recordings of 2013" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

For the last number of years I have been devoting myself almost exclusively to jazz vocals. This will be reflected this year as I will provide two best-of-2013 lists: one for (primarily) jazz vocals and one for everything else. Each year, there is more of both released than can be listened to.

Five Golden Rings for Christmas

Read "Five Golden Rings for Christmas" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

The 2011 holidays are nearly upon us and with them, the requisite focused recordings. The number of such offerings has diminished in the last number of years. What has not diminished is the quality of the recordings, as evidenced by these five “golden rings."

Happy holidays, jazz fans.
