Five Of HeartsFive of Hearts is the sec­ond CD (2011) by Five­Play Jazz Quin­tet, fea­tur­ing all orig­i­nal music by Laura Klein and guitarist/co-bandleader Tony Cor­man. This music is lis­ten­able, melodic, mod­ern jazz to nour­ish mind and heart. The tunes range from for­ays into samba, tango and gospel, to an Elling­ton­ian bal­lad and a wild Balkan ride!
Cerulean BlueCerulean Blue | The Laura Klein/Ted Wolff duo, released in 2009. Ini­tially inspired by the Gary Burton/Chick Corea col­lab­o­ra­tions, the duo has devel­oped an excit­ing, lyri­cal and highly inter­ac­tive style of their own. The gor­geous, unique sound of vibes and piano has been described as “ear candy” and this record­ing is rich with sonic beauty. There are orig­i­nals by Laura Klein and Ted Wolff, a hard dri­ving ren­di­tion of Kenny Barron’s “Voy­age”, a beau­ti­ful per­for­mance of J.J. Johnson’s “Lament”, a gospelly ver­sion of Wayne Shorter’s “Aung San Suu Kyi”, and more.
Five­Play | Sparkling jazz com­po­si­tions by Laura Klein, Tony Cor­man, and Dave Tid­ball, backed by the stel­lar rhythm sec­tion of drum­mer Alan Hall and bassist Paul Smith. The music is rooted in the best jazz tra­di­tions while draw­ing on mod­ern har­monies, rhythms, and tone col­ors, with lots of excit­ing inter­play among the musi­cians. To read more about the band, go to FivePlay’s web­site.
Tricer­atops | was a three-horned band that per­formed all orig­i­nal music by Laura Klein, Tony Cor­man, and Dave Tid­ball, with Dave Eshel­man (trom­bone), Dan Sea­mans (bass), and Alan Hall (drums.) “Backed by a cham­pion rhythm team — Laura Klein (piano), Alan Hall (drums) and Dan Sea­mans (bass), the three-horn front line plays ten better-than-Messenger-like orig­i­nals, pro­vid­ing cap­ti­vat­ing moments for lis­ten­ers.” — JazzTimes.
