Laurie Krauz

Laurie Krauz thrills audiences with her award-winning, blues-influenced jazz vocals and her powerful emotional range. Blazing new musical territory, Laurie combines improvisational elements with the passion and sensuality found in other forms of music to create a unique, soulful jazz -- "she creates a mood and weaves a musical story with every cell of her being." Named one of the top 525 jazz vocalists of all time in a book by noted jazz critic, Scott Yanow, slated to be published in 2008 (tentatively entitled The Jazz Singers/Backbeat Books), Laurie released her first CD, Catch Me If You Can (LML Records) in 2001 to much critical acclaim. Along with The Daryl Kojak Trio, Catch Me If You Can features jazz legend George Coleman on tenor sax and has been receiving accolades throughout the jazz world ("Jazz aficionados should welcome this impressive debut album from a singer who will certainly be making her mark on the jazz scene for years to come." -- Michael Laprarie, JazzReview.com)

Laurie Krauz: Catch Me if You Can

Read "Catch Me if You Can" reviewed by Dave Nathan

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
