For her sixth CD, Canadian vocalist Cheryl Fisher has recorded an album unique in both its repertoire and her approach.  Purposefully chosen to be on the quieter side,  Fisher puts a personal stamp on these beautiful, rarely heard songs, applying her musicianship and gift for vocal interpretation in celebration of love, or the mourning of love lost.  Although they come from the era of the Great American Songbook, Fisher has given them a modern jazz treatment with the brilliant accompaniment of pianist/arranger John Toomey, the singular Portland guitarist John Stowell, the bass & drum team of Jeff Johnson & John Bishop, and acclaimed woodwind artist Eric Allison. "Concept albums aren't what I usually do, but sometimes you just want to sit by the fireplace, have a glass of wine, put on an album and let it play right through, letting its mellow mood merge with your own."
After several years on the Canadian jazz scene playing and recording 4 CD's with the likes of Canadian jazz greats P.J. Perry, Tommy Banks, George Koller and Canadian composer Bob Erlendson, Cheryl Fisher spent 2 1/2 years studying and performing in Paris with brilliant Berkley graduate, pianist Olivier Caillard. She was a regular performer at Le Speakeasy Club, Sam Kearney's American Bar, La Pinte and the Bibloquet. In London she appeared with Scott Hamilton at Pizza on the Park, Peter Ind at The Bass Clef, and has performed many times at London's 606 club. In the US, Fisher has performed with Portland guitar great John Stowell, Dave Friesen, Dan Brubeck, Jack Sheldon, John Handy, Sir Roland Hanna, Ira Sullivan and Randy Porter, among many others. She has studied and taken master classes with the great jazz vocalists including Mark Murphy, Nancy King, Roberta Gambarini and Madeline Eastman.
