Laura Crema Saturday March 8, 2014 8:00 pm
The Vernon Jazz Club will be in for a treat as Laura Crema returns tothe stage this Saturday.
Crema will be joined by Sharon Minemoto on piano, John Bentley on bass and saxophone, and Joel Fountain on drums.
The band will be performing a variety of songs such as Waters of March (Antonio Carlos Jobim), I Like Sunrise (Duke Ellington), and Blackbird (Paul McCartney). They will also be sharing some originals like Seraphina (Crema and Minemoto) and High Ground (Crema and Bill Coon).
Crema is not only a top vocalist. She is also an accomplished dancer, choreographer, and interdisciplinary performer.
When asked to describe her vocal style Crema says, “My music is an amalgamation of Jazz, blues, Bossa Nova, pop, original compositions, and improvisation.”
Her music has been featured in CBC Radio’s Studio One Jazz Series during the Vancouver International Jazz Festival, and has earned air play on CBC’s Hot Air, After Hours, Coastal Grooves, Richardson’s Roundup, and North by Northwest.
Crema studied at the Banff Centre for the Arts with legendary jazz vocalists Sheila Jordan and Jay Clayton and in Washington State with Nancy King and Kurt Elling.
She has recently released her fourth album, Fotografia, which was produced by Brad Turner. This CD is filled with top artists Bill Coons, Dave Restivo, and Adam Thomas to name but a few.
What does one of Canada’s top radio stations say about this performer?
“All great jazz singers have at least three qualities in common. The first is that unique timbre that sets their voice apart. The second is the material they choose to sing. And the third is the fresh ideas and insights they bring to those songs. Laura Crema has all three in spades!” says CBC Radio.
