Mary LaRose & Ledhead:
Walking Woman

Mary LaRose & Ledhead: WALKING WOMANMary LaRose is an artist who champions the language of vocal jazz in the post-bop era through her unique versions of Lennon-McCartney’s “Blackbird” and Led Zeppelin’s “Kashmir” (for four smooth-as-silk trombones!) and her lyrical renderings of solos by Ornette Coleman, Eric Dolphy, Anthony Braxton, and Charles Mingus.   

Includes leading improvisers of New York’s “downtown” scene — Jeff Lederer, reeds; Cameron Brown, bass; Steve Swell, trombone; Jamie Saft, keyboards, and Matt Wilson, drums.

“Mary LaRose is an intriguing vocalist who sings original and classic vocalese with a downtown edge.”   —JazzTimes
