Lisa Otey is a Tucson, Arizona-based pianist, who's talents as a singer and songwriter are well matched with her amazing piano-playing. Lisa's latest creation is "Hard Workin' Woman". Otey's song selection generally jumps between hot boogie woogies to torchy vocal numbers. The opening title cut is a frantic boogie woogie tune, with scorching piano by Otey and good fiddle accompaniment from Heather Hardy. Otey then transforms herself into a torch singer for the original 'Maybe We'll Be Lucky Again," with subtle, tasteful horn work and nice piano. The one that's a real hoot is "Xena For Xmas," on which Otey sings about her dismay in tuning in the TV to watch Xena the Warrior Princess, only to instead find Baywatch on the air. Next is a hauntingly sensual version of the classic "My Funny Valentine". For a change of pace, we get a funky, jazzy number, "Sittin' On The Back Porch," with excellent muted trumpet from David Otey. Lisa brings freshness to old standards and introduces her own creative brand of humor with her originals.
