Laurel Adams Trio

June 6 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Laurel K Adams has the potential to do what Norah Jones has done, broaden the horizons of audiences in regard to what constitutes a jazz vocalist.  Adams nor Jones possess the poignant tones of a Billie Holiday or the range of a Sarah Vaughan or Carmen McRae. But Adams, like Jones, continually shows that a softer, sensual delivery can not only work in the improvisational world but be equally compelling and convincing. Hopefully, Adams will eventually enjoy the same success as Jones in winning over jazz critics while doing songs that reveal the influence of country, folk, and pop.

In fact, Adams began working in pop/country and has also dabbled in folk, theater, opera, and rock. Ultimately though, jazz has emerged as the idiom best suited to display her full range of talents. These include an energetic personality and natural charm, the ability to handle with ease any type of song from Broadway show tunes to a Carol King pop hit, and a timing and delivery that are precise and delightful. Adams is also a solid musician and songwriter, who’s played the piano and guitar for years.
