Lisa Bell

On her debut album, Dare to Be..., Boulder-based singer Lisa Bell put modern spins on jazz standards, and there was still a fair amount of jazz on her second album, It's All About Love. On her third and latest effort, Dancing on the Moon, Bell holds on to her jazz beginnings but also delves into roots, blues and pop. Most of the dozen cuts, like the funky "Change Is Free" and "Stand Up," the breezy "After All" and "How Long," veer more toward Norah Jones than, say, Diana Krall. The result is an album that not only shows off the singer's warm and inviting voice, but showcases her versatility as well.
