After a busy start to 2017, vocalist Laurin Talese is preparing for her next series of performances to usher in spring, marked by a return to the legendary Minton’s Harlem on March 24th. She has enjoyed several sold-out shows at not only Minton’s, but also venues in Philadelphia and Atlanta as well. Most recently, Talese was handpicked to perform as part of The ASCAP Foundation’s showcase, “Songwriters: The Next Generation” at Washington, D.C.’s esteemed Kennedy Center. Later this spring, she joins the line up at the Art of Cool Fest in Durham, NC on April 29th, followed by her first show at the Soiled Dove Underground in Denver, CO on May 12th.

Talese’s first concerts of the New Year were carefully curated to honor singing legend, Nancy Wilson. Key elements of these performances remain in her current show, as well as repertoire from her debut album entitled, Gorgeous Chaos, released in 2016. The recording features Adam Blackstone, Robert GlasperChristian McBrideUlysses Owens, Jr., and longtime collaborator Eric Wortham II, among others, and was named one of the top ten Jazz albums of the year in the Chicago Tribune. Upon its debut, Gorgeous Chaos ranked highly on Billboard’s jazz charts as well.

Talese is planning a host of appearances throughout the year, as well as new material to be released in the coming months.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
