Dancing in Darkness
Laura's second album of solo jazz vocals, Dancing in Darkness, will be released in June 2022.
The album comprises songs by an international array of jazz composers and a variety of jazz styles: swing, bebop, ballads, Latin, modern, and fusion, occasionally treating listeners to Laura's impeccably-pronounced French and Portuguese singing.
Join her and the fabulous band that recorded with her, at the album's release concert in San Jose, CA, on Sunday, June 26th, 2022 at 2:00pm. CDs will be available for purchase at the event. Click on the Calendar page for more concert details.
