“[With her] clear-eyed poetry... Wallfisch combines the intimate purview of a singer-songwriter with the technical liberties of a jazz improviser. Crossing boarders and flouting rules seem to come naturally to the youngest child of a renowned classical-music dynasty.” — The Boston Globe

Joanna Wallfisch previews this world debut retrospective of 1960’s songstresses, a program that bridges the sounds and stories of folk and jazz improvisations calling on Joni Mitchell, Joan Baez, Judee Sill, Carole King, Lesley Gore, Laura Nyro and more. In a unique and fresh revamping of the Great American Songbook but with a 1960’s songstress twist, Wallfisch will explore greater themes of connectivity in both musical and historical relevance of the genre, carving a space of her own within its powerful lineage.

Critics call Wallfisch “mesmerizing” (Jazzwise) with “crystalline delivery” (Downbeat).
