Heart of Hearing is a Boston-based acoustic jazz band whose aim is to bring listeners into the landscape of their conversant sound and singable melodies. Their joyful expression of musical intimacy and spontaneity is evident in the shimmering transparency of their interactions, as well as in the felt sense that these musical storytellers are as much involved in listening as in playing.
“The power of combining music with words magically allows meaning to penetrate more deeply,” says band leader Bert Seager. “I sense that adding Lili’s gorgeous voice to our long-standing jazz quartet – singing lyrics about love and transformation – amplifies the connecting force of our music.”
On this new album, recorded with exquisite clarity and warmth by two-time Grammy-winning sound engineer, Antonio Oliart, each song at once bridges the divide between listener and performer, accompanying everyone into the heart of hearing.
