    Lisa should go touring, she's so great

    So Intense is her only album, sofar. Unbelievable, that this is more than 20 years old, it sounds much more fresh.

    I "ran" into her when she was touring with Tina Turner in 2009.

    Lisa you are a front-(wo)man.

    One of the best voices I've ever heard...

    Lisa Fischer is by far one of the best female vocalists ever. I was truly disappointed that she did not release another CD after the success of So Intense. Her voice is phenomenal and unique, with a range that is amazing! I've had the pleasure of watching her perform live with the late Luther Vandross. I searched this site to repurchase this CD because the original purchase was damaged...that's how much I enjoyed it. If you're a jazz lover, you must purchase Norman Connors CD, which was released I believe in 1999 or 2000 where Ms. Fischer gives an amazing vocal to "Didn't I Blow Your Mind This Time?". She is truly a "singer's singer". So Intense is definitely worth the purchase!
