Laurin Talese, a captivating vocalist who recently won the seventh annual Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition, leads an exciting quintet with saxophonist Yesseh Furaha-Ali, pianist Eric Wortham, bassist Jonathan Michel, and drummer Anwar Marshall. Downbeat reports, “Laurin’s voice combines breathy intimacy with sharp clarity,” and The Chicago Tribune adds, “Some of the most luxuriant, sumptuously phrased jazz vocals you could hope to hear.”
Talese has shared the stage with artists such as Gregory Porter, Patti LaBelle, and Robert Glasper, as well as with renowned classical and jazz ensembles such as The Cleveland Orchestra and The Cleveland Jazz Heritage Orchestra.
