notes from Lisa: Lisa in "American Songbook" series
Posted by: Lightning on Saturday, January 15, 2005 - 08:00 PM
General news By Jim Bessman
NEW YORK (Billboard) - Rosanne Cash gave an extraordinary trio of performances late last year at Manhattan's Rubin Museum of Art, a new cultural and educational institution dedicated to the art of the Himalayas and designed to explore connections among world cultures.

The "Acoustic Cash" programs (Oct. 8, Nov. 5, Dec. 3) featured Cash accompanied by her producer/husband, John Leventhal, on guitar, performing songs inspired by "The Wheel of Life," a Tibetan painting that illustrates the essential Buddhist teachings.

Cash also engaged guest artists Marshall Crenshaw, Teddy Thompson and Black 47's Larry Kirwan in song and conversation, so each informal evening was part music, part monologue and part talk show -- an innovative and intriguing format worthy of further exploration.

In fact, Cash will do just that Feb. 10 as part of Lincoln Center's "American Songbook" series (which also includes Lisa Loeb, Nellie McKay and Elaine Stritch). She is likely to perform new material from her next Capitol album, due later in 2005. And maybe she'll cover the still mysterious, monumental 1967 Bobbie Gentry hit "Ode to Billie Joe," as she did with Kirwan at the Rubin Museum series finale.

"I read recently that Bobbie Gentry thought the most compelling part of the song was the nonchalance with which the family discussed the suicide -- and I get that," Cash said afterwards, having delivered a more lengthy analysis of the much discussed and disputed Tallahatchie Bridge incident that is at the heart of the song.

"I see why that moved her the most. Of course, we Philistines are just obsessed with what she threw off the bridge: The most obvious -- and the answer with the most votes over the years -- seems to be a baby, but maybe that's too easy. Maybe it was a written vow -- or a ring. But I love that people are still discussing this 30 years later. It gives me hope as a songwriter!"

General news Hey everyone! Lisa here, typing on my new Apple IMac. Nice. Eating a delicious snack. Carrot sticks and a dip made of plain yogurt and really spicy Coleman's mustard. Delicious. Great balance for the chocolate chip muffins and cakes I ate today. Back in Los Angeles after a lot of touring. Thanks for coming out to the shows.

The in-store Kelly Lounge performance at the Borders #512 in Bakersfield was great! So many people showed up- maybe 300? Melissa, one of the women who run the store gave us iced Christmas Cookies, a delicious rasberry and blueberry tart, and some homemade pita bread and a tomato/jalape

Lisa Loeb took on all comers
Posted by: admin on Sunday, December 26, 2004 - 01:35 PM
General news Lisa Loeb took on all comers, or at least a couple of Georgia Straight types, when they snuck in through the back door at the Media Club on September 23. Hell hath no fury like a bespectacled singer-songwriter scorned, and she challenged the Straight staffers--who had been upstairs celebrating the completion of another "Best Of" issue--to come on-stage and show her what they were best at.

MAYBE THIS CHRISTMAS TREE


DARRYL STEARDAN, Special to The Free Press 2004-12-11 02:48:11







VARIOUS ARTISTS; NETTWERK/EMI

Meet Santa's little hipsters. Cool customers such as the Raveonettes, Death Cab for Cutie and Pilate band together to buy toys for needy kids.

Chestnuts roasted: Polyphonic Spree give John Lennon's Happy Xmas (War is Over) the full-choir treatment; Death Cab take Phil Spector's Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) for a spin; Lisa Loeb rings those Jingle Bells.

Yule love: Pedro the Lion's dulcet I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day.

Yule wish: Pilate hadn't tried to cover the Pogues' inimitable Fairytale of New York.
