Lisa Baney Trio

Jazz singer Lisa Baney came to Humboldt six years ago from the city of San Francisco, where she sang for three decades in small clubs and on large stages in the city and around the Bay Area. Early in her career she studied with the legendary Mark Murphy; later on she fronted bands in both the U.S. and Europe, appearing with performers as diverse as Vicki Lawrence and Kenny Rankin. She is, as San Francisco Chronicle music critic Gerald Nachman notes, “pure, lithe, warmly burnished…a classic polished jazz singer.”
