Lauren Hooker

Jazz

Nov. 17 08:00 pm

At Puffin Cultural Forum

20 Puffin Way , Teaneck NJ

   

Posted by: Melissa   

While often compared to Dianne Reeves, Nancy Wilson, Anita O’Day, Sarah Vaughan or Dinah Washington, Lauren Hooker’s style remains uniquely her own. A jazz vocalist, pianist and educator, Lauren has performed and/or recorded with some of the best in the business including Rufus Reid, Allen Farnham, Bucky Pizzarelli, Reggie Workman and Billy Holiday’s former pianist, Mal Waldron. Her arrangements of jazz standards and original compositions highlight her three-octave vocal range and include lyrics set to instrumentals by Thelonius Monk, Fats Waller, Charles Mingus, Mal Waldron, Wayne Shorter and Vic Juris. She will be joined in her Puffin performance by in-demand guitarist John Hart, award-winning Martin Wind on cello, electric and acoustic bass and US Cultural Ambassador Tim Horner on drums and percussion.
