“There are... singers who simply adore and revel singing at a pure level of sincerity and expression. Lori Carsillo convincingly conveys the depth of this emotional perspective with her distinctively personal approach.”

- Dr. Herb Wong

About The CD

Lori’s debut album, Bittersweet, is a collection of standards and lesser-known jazz tunes that create a vibe both noir and haunting, bright and transcending. The band features a number of the finest Bay Area musicians - Dave Mac Nab on guitar, John Shifflett on bass, Jason Lewis on drums & percussion, and keyboardist Michael Bluestein, with Eric Crystal on saxophone, Robin Bonnell on cello and Robby Virus on theremin. With unique arrangements and unexpected surprises, Bittersweet draws you into strangely familiar places, touching something put aside and almost forgotten.
