about

“The mood is intimate as her duo accompaniment…Lindsley’s simple delivery is delicate and unaffected.” John Ephland- Downbeat, March issue (3 stars)

“… a Bay Area singer who we need to keep an eye on – and ears wide open for years to come…”Ken Franckling – Jazz Times

“One way to separate jazz singing wheat from chaff is the presence of elegant simplicity…Lindsley’s debut, Every Time We Say Goodbye, has in copious amounts…” All About Jazz – C. Michael Bailey

Without any rehearsal or even knowing what songs we would record, we trekked into Whip Records dragging the amazing acoustic bass player Fred Randolf along with us. The two days that followed were spent creating pure passion.

Most of the songs were recorded in one or two takes with very little mixing done, a true Jazz Album. It is indeed pure passion, and bliss transporting you to a place of simple pleasures.

Rated as one of the top 10 vocalists of 2011 in Jazz Station – Arnaldo DeSouteiro’s Blog: The Best Jazz of 2011 Also one of the top 10 best albums and George Mesterhazy as one of the top 10 pianists.

Track Name: The Nearness Of You
Its not the pale moon that excites me
That thrills and delights me, oh no
Its just the nearness of you

It isn't your sweet conversation
That brings this sensation, oh no
Its just the nearness of you

When you're in my arms and I feel you so close to me
All my wildest dreams come true

I need no soft lights to enchant me
If you'll only grant me the right
To hold you ever so tight
And to feel in the night the nearness of you
Track Name: Don't Explain
Hush now, dont explain
Just say, you'll remain
I'm glad you're back
Don't explain

Quiet, don't explain
You mix with some name
Skip that lipstick
Don't explain

You know that I love you
And what love endures
Nothing rates above you
When I'm so completely yours

Cry to hear folks chatter
And I know you cheat
Right and wrong, don't matter
When you're with me, sweet

Hush now, don't explain
You're my joy and pain
My life's yours, love
Don't explain
Track Name: Alice In Wonderland
Alice in Wonderland
How do you get to Wonderland
Over the hill or underland
Or just behind the tree

When clouds go rolling by
They roll away and leave the sky
Where is the land beyond the eye
That people cannot see

Where can it be
Where do the stars go
Where is the crescent moon
They must be somewhere in the sunny afternoon

Alice in Wonderland
Where is the path to Wonderland
Over the hill or here or there
I wonder where
Track Name: Inside a Silent Tear
Inside a silent tear, I have a silent dream
That sometimes sails across, the patterns of my mind
For silence follows me, and dreams just disappear
And then I find myself, inside a silent tear.

I’m always finding love, when it’s not meant to be
Wheat is reality, and can it be defined?
When you’re a fool like me, it’s never really clear
So you have silent dreams, Inside a silent tear

Sometimes I laugh too much, to hide the emptiness;
To lose the loneliness, I’m not the laughing kind
I can’t say anything, I really want to say
Sometimes I try so hard, I stumble on the way

I’m always finding love, when it’s not meant to be
Wheat is reality, and can it be defined?
When you’re a fool like me, it’s never really clear
So you have silent dreams, Inside a silent tear
Track Name: The Very Thought Of You
The very thought of you and I forget to do
The little ordinary things that everyone ought to do
I'm living in a kind of daydream
I'm happy as a king
And foolish though it may seem
To me that's everything

The mere idea of you, the longing here for you
You'll never know how slow the moments go till I'm near to you
I see your face in every flower
Your eyes in stars above
It's just the thought of you
The very thought of you, my love
Track Name: It's Only A Paper Moon
It is only a paper moon
Sailing over a cardboard sea
But it wouldn't be make believe
If you believed in me

Yes, it's only a canvas sky
Hangin' over a muslin tree
But it wouldn't be make believe
If you believed in me

Without your love
It's a honky tonk parade
Without your love
It's a melody played in a penny arcade

It's a Barnum and Bailey world
Just as phony as it can be
But it wouldn't be make believe
If you believed in me
Track Name: Everytime We Say Goodbye
Everytime we say goodbye I die a little
Everytime we say goodbye I wonder why a little
Why the gods above me who must be in the know
Think so little of me
They allow you to go

And when you're near
There's such an air of spring about it
I can hear a lark somewhere begin to sing about it
There's no love song finer
But how strange the change from major to minor
Everytime we say goodbye

Everytime we say goodbye I die a little
Everytime we say goodbye I wonder why a little
Why the gods above me who must be in the know
Think so little of me
They allow you to go

When you're near
There's such an air of spring about it
I can hear a lark somewhere begin to sing about it
There's no love song finer
But how strange the change from major to minor
Everytime we say goodbye
Track Name: Why Don't You Do Right
You had plenty money 1922
You let other women make a fool of you
Why don't you do right like some other men do?
Get out of here and get me some money too

You're sitting down, wondering what it's all about
If you ain't got no money, they will put you out
Why don't you do right like some other men do?
Get out of here and get me some money too

If you had prepared twenty years ago
You wouldn't be wanderin' now from door to door
Why don't you do right, like some other men do?
Get out of here and get me some money too

I fell for your jivin' and I took you in
Now all you got to offer me's a drink of gin
Why don't you do right like some other men do?
Get out of here and get me some money too

Why don't you do right, like some other men do?
Like some other men do
Track Name: The Girl From Ipanema
Tall and tan and young and lovely
The girl from Ipanema goes walking
And when she passes, each one she passes goes - ah

When she walks, she's like a samba
That swings so cool and sways so gentle
That when she passes, each one she passes goes - ooh

(Ooh) But I watch her so sadly
How can I tell her I love her
Yes I would give my heart gladly
But each day, when she walks to the sea
She looks straight ahead, not at me

Tall, and tan, and young, and lovely
The girl from Ipanema goes walking
And when she passes, I smile - but she doesn't see (doesn't see)
