Lisa performed at the Zermatt Unplugged Festival last night in Switzerland. As a special guest she was invited to perform with the Ronnie Scotts All Star band within the sumptuous setting of the famous Kaufleuten club in Zurich.
Lisa sang four songs in-front of a subdued, yet decadent crowd of diners who had forked out a hefty CHF 1,000 (approx GBP 650) per head for the very privilege to sit and listen to Lisa perform on stage with the Ronnie Scott's band for approximately 20 minutes.
To kick off the proceedings, she sang a couple of jazzy numbers which seemed to perfectly suit the opulent ambience with 'Don't Explain' and 'Good Morning Heartache' then gave the audience a couple of crowd-pleaser's with 'Live Together' and finished off with 'All Around The World'.
However it was Lisa’s second song of the night ‘Good Morning Heartache’ (originally sung by Billie Holiday) which was the ultimate stand out moment. It was a true delight to hear Lisa perform this song again. I have fond memories of hearing and seeing Lisa first perform this live on her very first tour more than 25 years ago and many fans from back in the early days will certainly remember it well. So it was a genuine pleasure to hear Lisa sing this live again. (Lisa was initially inspired by this track from her teenage years after first seeing Diana Ross playing Billie Holiday in the biopic movie Lady Sings the Blues).
Overall a magnificent evening in Zurich spent in exceptional company.
