“Lola Danza– The adventurous Singer/Composer, whose patiently flowing voice evokes atmospheres from the ethereal to the ominous”—(Boston Globe)
“With a stunning voice that elongates words and phrases with almost ethereal clarity, Danza follows her own muse stylistically, preferring the spare and airy to the busy and hot.” — (The Boston Herald– Bob Young)
“Lola Danza is a part of a new breed of jazz singer writing original material and experimenting. And she has the chops to pull it off.” -The Boston Phoenix Jon Garelick
Ms. Danza’s music is innovative and the result is the creation of a new idiom in music. She infuses beautiful flowing melodies and creative improvised lines with effortless mastery. With her four-octave range and vast array of vocal technique, Ms. Danza’s voice is rich, full and resonate. Lola’s music reveals a special connection to her soul that cultivates mutual inspiration between the musicians and enchants the audience.
Lola’s music and compositions encompass myriad musical styles that span the world: from Asia to Latin America and including the influences of classical, jazz, contemporary American, gypsy, folk, and Flamenco music. Written with intensity and honesty, the songs are spiritual, her lyrics sheer poetry filled with insight that everyone can relate to and understand. The music evokes images of impressionistic and abstract paintings rich in texture and colour.
Ms. Danza has performed with world renowned jazz artists such as Ornette Coleman, Steve Kuhn, Lewis Nash, Bob Moses, John Lockwood, Ben Monder, Mat Maneri, Dave Tronzo, Bob Gullotti, Luciana Souza and Leni Stern.
Lola Danza has a Bachelors Degree from Berklee College of Music and a Masters Degree from Aaron Copland School of Music.
Currently– Ms. Danza is returning to the recording studio for two different recordings that will be released by the winter of 2011. She will be recording at Bill Laswell’s studio.
