“    WOODY LISSAUER by WOODY LISSAUER (Independent) - Woody Lissauer's 2004 release is a breath of fresh air. With over an hour of songs, you’ll find a lot of great music to explore. It begins with the tune ‘Roses’, which is already being spinned on local radio here in Maryland. Lissauer plays many of the instruments including guitars, reeds, keyboards, violin, and percussion. Though much of this recording has acoustic instruments, I found it to have some very driving rhythms. He is joined by many female vocalists including his sister Kate Lissauer. She also plays banjo and fiddle and is currently performing in England. Guesting on the record is Spike from the band NEVER NEVER, vocalist Chris Noyes, trumpeter Jimmy Wilson, Lissauer's cohort Crash on drums,and the late Brian Durham. There are 13 tunes in all and even includes a remake of the traditional English ballad 'John Barleycorn Must die' which was also recorded by Traffic in 1970..but with his introduction of a heavy drumbeat , it could attract a whole new audience.. It's available at Baltimore ,MD and DC record store locations. In closing this CD has some very cool textures and Lissauer's approach to songwritng and sound sculpting is both new and exciting.
