Event Description

Lizz Wright's first two Verve releases, Salt and Dreaming Wide Awake, established her as one of the jazz world's most celebrated rising stars, both an accomplished songwriter and a versatile, deeply expressive singer. On her third album The Orchard, the Georgia-bred, New York-based artist takes a substantial leap forward, transcending genre distinctions to deliver a vibrant, intensely creative milestone.

The largely self-penned The Orchard finds Wright mining her own experience to create an unmistakably personal musical statement. The warmth and resonance of Wright's gospel-trained contralto is matched by the intimacy and authority of such original compositions as "Coming Home", "My Heart", "Another Angel" and "When I Fall". Wright's interpretive skills are equally impressive on revelatory readings of the Ike and Tina Turner classic "I Idolize You", Sweet Honey in the Rock's "Hey Mann", the Led Zeppelin ballad "Thank You" and Patsy Cline's haunting "Strange".
