Hailing from Austria, and now residing in New York City, Elisabeth Lohninger’s distinctive, alto jazz sound pays homage to the ephemeral nature of love as well as the mystery of waking up each day - life at its core. Her seven successful albums, from her debut project in 1998, Austrian LiedGood to her current multi-facet project, TrioNada weave the influences of EST, Bobby McFerrin, Sarah Vaughan, Sting and Joni Mitchell into an original tapestry of word and music.
"...a significant jazz singer!"
M. P. Gladstone, AAJ

"When I include a vocalist on my programs, it's only because I hear a hell of a singer and I want to share that experience. That Elisabeth Lohninger is such a singer was obvious to me from the first time I heard her. Actually, I don't think of Elisabeth Lohninger as a singer at all, but rather a musician, an artist, a poet who sings."
Bob Rogers
Program Host
WSHA-Raleigh/WWOZ-New Orleans

"The Only Way Out is Up is the best independent vocal jazz recording I have heard this year, and it may very well outlast the big-label offerings."
C. Michael Bailey, AAJ

Reminiscent of early landmark Blue-Note recordings, the album makes a bold and fresh statement that bristles with super-charged energy yet still allows for moments of space and intimacy.

Mona Lisa Puzzle is essential listening for any lover of fine jazz recordings.
