About Lost in Romance
Lost In Romance is a unique album that combines 13 of Los Angeles’ best jazz musicians performing in four different trios along with soloists. The album is organized as a tale of love’s in’s and out’s, trials and tribulations, joys and disappointments—in a sequence that is best appreciated when heard in song order. The songs include traditional Great American Songbook tunes, but also step into blues and even Broadway-with “Losing My Mind” performed from a dancer’s perspective in a jazz arrangement. The album’s musicians and stellar arrangements were created by Tamir Hendelman, Steve Rawlins and Llew Matthews—all three have worked with some of the greatest artists in America including Barbra Streisand, Bette Midler and Nancy Wilson.
Paul Smith listened to Lost In Romance shortly before his death on June 29, 2013. As Lyn’s mentor, he told her he was very pleased with the album and rated it “A++.” Those who knew Paul can attest that his accolades were sparse and his expectations high from every musician and singer he encountered. Prior to his death, he confided to Lyn that he “hoped to be around for her 10th album” and he believed others would appreciate her work as much as he did.
