Now's the Time: Lisa Engelken
I've spent a lot of time with Lisa Engelken's album Caravan in recent days. It's an exceptionally savvy jazz vocal project. Her reading of the Billy Idol hit "White Wedding" is a case in point. Engelken, a native Kansan currently based in San Francisco, plays Jardine's on Friday, June 24. She'll be backed by Stan Kessler, Roger Wilder, Gerald Spaits and drummer Matt Swindells.
