New Vintage

Laura Ainsworth

Eclectus Records

Laura Ainsworth’s debut, Keep It To Yourself, was hailed by as one of “the year’s most consistently engaging jazz releases.”  Jazz Inside raved that her follow-up, Necessary Evil, “not only met the incredible standard set by her debut recording, but surpassed it.”  Now, with worldwide raves and airplay, and a feature in the December 2017 issue of DownBeat, New Vintage is being called her breakthrough.  Along with pianist Brian Piper and some of North Texas’ top jazz players, Laura’s satiny, sultry, “impossibly old-fashioned voice” is breathing new life into standards and lost gems that have gone unrecorded for over half a century.
