The Liaisons - a new twist on the old jazz standards
Indulging in a longtime love of jazz, songwriter Laura Kemp has joined forces with bassist Sean Peterson to form The Liaisons. The duo, sometimes trio, plays an eclectic mix of jazz standards with Laura on guitar and vocals and Sean on upright bass and vocals. Recently they've been adding saxophone player extraordinaire, Paul Biondi or Adam Harris, into the mix as well.
The Liaisons have been playing as a group for over a year, performing at wineries, benefits, restaurants, the Jazz Station, and Eugene's Holiday/Saturday markets. They play a variety of songs from the American Songbook, such as All the Things You Are, It's Only a Paper Moon, Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, But Not for Me, and Cheek to Cheek. Their take on the old standards is truly unique and entertaining!
