Kootenay Savings Music In The Park: Laura Landsberg Quintet

August 10 7:00 to 8:00 pm

“Laura Landsberg is a rare vocalist, one who can cross almost any genre with a range of expression and emotion that draws you into anything she decides to sing. She is widely known as a wonderful Jazz and R&B singer. On her latest recording, A Simple Twist, she stretches out and explores new territory, all with her trade mark virtuosity. She uses her musical curiosity to combine elements of Jazz, Country and even some Rock to deliver a song in a way that's all her own. The recording is a beautiful mix of stellar musicianship, great song choices and Laura's fantastic delivery. She is simply a joy to listen to.”

-Craig Korth  Director Nimble Fingers Music Festival

Although Laura has been described as, “A remarkably fresh and unpretentious singer”, Spokesman Review. Perhaps Paul Grant (CBC Hot Air), put it best when he stated, “With so many singers trying to sound like someone else, it’s a treat to hear Laura Landsberg’s fresh and original voice….. she’s a natural.

 

Landsberg has been leading a busy life as a wife, a mother to six children, a music instructor at Selkirk College, and a jazz singer. Living in Nelson B.C., she had a perfect setting in which to raise her family and the small town culture allowed her to sing, as time would permit. She has been able to sing a lot and her credits speak for themselves. Landsberg has performed with Desafinado, a Brazilian group out of Spokane, played the Kaslo Jazz Festival, the Sandpoint Jazz Festival in Idaho, guest vocalist with Chucho Valdez at the the Havana Jazz Festival, performed with Chris Brubeck, the bass playing son of Dave Brubeck, as well as appearing with the Spokane Jazz Orchestra, and Hugh Fraser and VEJI (Vancouver Ensemble of Jazz Improvisation).
