Description:

ABOUT THE ALBUM

A Spy In Tortuga is Jeff Lisenby's first independent jazz accordion album, and features several brand-new original compositions by Lisenby, as well as several reinvented jazz standards. The instrumentation is traditional jazz quartet: bass, drums, guitar... and accordion. The additional sax, vocalist, keyboards, or percussion here and there enhance the album well.

"The accordion has been stereotyped for a long time," Lisenby said. "I want people to hear this CD, enjoy it for its diversity, and hear the accordion as another fine musical instrument, which can be used in any type of music."

Lisenby can be heard on numerous country and Christian recordings and recently worked as the Music Director for the Broadway musical "Ring Of Fire". When asked why he chose to record a jazz album, Lisenby answered, "I grew up in Kansas City, MO, where there is a jazz commission, as part of the city government. Because of that, I grew up hearing many of the great national jazz figures who came to town to play for us -- Count Basie, Monty Alexander, Maynard Fergusson, Bill Evans, Chick Corea.

So I've been loving and playing jazz for a long time. I like the freedom to play whatever I want in the improvised sections, and I like the sound of a big band all playing in ensemble."
He also adds, "There aren't a lot of jazz accordionists around, but accordion is slowly coming back into style in the United States. We're hearing it on more and more pop albums. It seems like a good time to put a jazz accordion CD on the market."

The result? Anyone who listens will be forced to admit, on some level, accordion is decidedly cool.
