The Berlin based jazz singer Lisa Bassenge presents a collection of covers centered on the metropolis of Los Angeles. Produced by Larry Klein who has helmed with a golden touch for artists such as Melody Gardot, Herbie Hancock's Grammy winning "The Joni Letters", and Madeleine Peyroux among others. With songs penned by Tom Waits, Rickie Lee Jones, the Beach Boys and more, 'Canyon Songs' tips it's hand in it's provenance to an era of Los Angeles music making that goes well with the melancholic jazz stylings of Bassenge along with her ace trio comprised of trumpeter Till BrÃ¶nner, guitarist Thomas Dybdahl and famed sessiondrummer Vinnie Colaiuta.
