Recognized by Radio Canada’s Ici Musique as one of the top 5 female jazz musicians to watch out for, Toronto-based French/American Jazz singer Laura Anglade is making a name for herself in the Jazz world. Continuing the tradition of the great jazz singers – Laura’s singing is reminiscent of many of the great vocal stylists of the 20th century including Anita O’Day, Shirley Horn, and Blossom Dearie, but her voice is uniquely her own. She digs emotionally and eloquently into a standard, her story-telling abilities portray a soul beyond her years.
Her debut release, ‘I’ve Got Just About Everything’ saw the vocalist and composer, along with her quintet, fearlessly plunging headlong into a wide range of top-notch material, drawn from both the Broadway stage as well as the Great American Songbook. On her sophomore recording, ‘Venez Donc Chez Moi’, Laura teams up with Montreal guitarist Sam Kirmayer (and New-York based accordionist Benjamin Rosenblum on two tracks). It’s an homage of sorts, and a nod to Laura’s beloved France. It features jazz versions of French classics made famous by Barbara, Charles Trenet, Edith Piaf, and Michel Legrand to name a few.
