Martier, Laura and The John Toomey Quartet
Vsojaz, 2002, CD
Instrument: Female Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Laura is an entertaining singer, blending her voice with the band and soaring above them when appropriate. The effect is pleasing over 10 reshaped jazz blues classics. On this sophomore effort, she’s backed by John Toomey’s (p, organ) quartet including some heart felt work on sax from Eddie Williams.
