LAURA MARKS – VOCALS, BERNIE SENENSKY – PIANO, ROSS MACINTYRE – BASS AND BEN RILEY – DRUMS
Upon hearing Billie Holiday’s 1957 Verve recording, “Body and Soul” when she was 15, Laura experienced a moment of epiphany that triggered a life-long love of Jazz.
As a visual artist who lived and worked in London, England for many years, Laura draws on her experience interpreting the world of colour and form to express herself musically. She treats melody with inventive flair, all the while respecting the composer’s original intention, as can be heard on her debut recording, “57 Minutes”, released at Jazz Bistro in 2013.
Her repertoire includes a range of music, including rarely heard tunes from the 1920s onwards, songs from Brazil and some original tunes.
