Granddaughter of a 1920's female jazz pianist and daughter of legendary big band saxophonist Billy Ainsworth of the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, Laura Ainsworth has classic supper club jazz in her DNA. The Dallas-based singer has a pure, rich tone and nearly three-octave range that has attracted some of the best jazz players in the Southwest to her side, including 2011 "Dallas Jazz Musician of the Year" Brian Piper, to create her shows that combine her contemporary sense of humor with the elegant style of the great supper club performers of the '40s and '50s.
