Laura Zakian and Band

The Band
Steve Lodder (piano)
Simon Thorpe (bass)
Nic France (drums and percussion)
Paul Bartholomew (baritone saxophone)
Laura Zakian (voice)
Laura Zakian will be performing from her current album, SONGS FOR MODERN LOVERS:  While the repertoire is broad, it is still rooted in the best of jazz. Inspired by the iconic Frank Sinatra album ‘Songs For Swinging Lovers’, fresh re-arrangements of the original tracks are complimented by an eclectic array of contemporary love songs that Laura grew up with. New acoustic takes on tunes by Joe Jackson, Sam Brown, Elvis Costello, Paul Weller and Chicago have been arranged by some of the country’s leading jazz musicians.“It’s a personal mixtape that not only showcases the singer’s beguiling timbre, but also her command of mood and pacing.”  Jazz Review
“I absolutely love the album…you’ve sung Stop beautifully. Nice to hear a different take on it.” Sam Brown“Zakian’s voice is worth listening to; her delivery is deliciously silky-smith, her vibrato mellifluous …. and some downright swinging on Our Love Is Here To Stay”  Jazz Journal
