Lisa Mezzacappa on NPR

Mezzacappa on The California Report - click to go thereActually, Lisa Mezzacappa herself didn’t appear on NPR; her albums did, in a review and mini-profile by Andrew Gilbert for KQED-FM’s California Report.

Gilbert is a freelance music writer who’s well versed in outer-limits jazz; I’ve followed his career for quite a while, as his byline has shown up in quite a few Bay Area publications. (He also writes about pop, which probably goes further toward paying the bills.)

Gilbert reviews Mezzacappa’s trio album, X Marks the Question, and the new one from the Bait & Switch quartet, Comeuppance. Always nice to see good local music get some love from local media. Check it out here.
