"Jennifer Lauletta's 'Things We Said Today' is further proof that Louisville's jazz scene is alive and well. Her selection of songs, ranging from American Songbook classics like 'Fascinatin' Rhythm' to jazz standards like 'Round Midnight' to contemporary but lesser known compositions like Joni Mitchell's 'I Don't Know Where I Stand,' reveals a breadth of taste which is matched by her interpretive abilities. Her bouncy personality shows through, and is well supported by her long-time accompanists Steve Crews on piano, Ron "Butch" Neeld on bass and Joe Lauletta on drums."

Bio

She couldn’t believe it. There she was on stage with THE Duke Ellington at the Al Hirt Club in New Orleans. When Jennifer was asked to sit in, she didn’t have to think twice. She sang “My Funny Valentine,” accompanied by Mr. Ellington and his wonderful orchestra. At the age of 20, she wasn’t a polished vocalist yet. It wasn’t horrible; it wasn’t great; it was – okay. She knew it; Mr. Ellington knew it, and all the great names on the stage knew it. But Mr. Ellington was very gracious. After receiving the “four kisses,” Jennifer decided that she would one day be a jazz singer.

After seven years on the road with show bands and lounge acts across the country, including the Las Vegas MGM Grand (Lion’s Den Lounge – on the bill with Lou Rawls) and Ye Little Club in Los Angeles, Jennifer returned to her home town of Louisville, Kentucky, and put together her own bands, mostly performing popular music. During that time, she also traveled over most of the U.S. with an inspirational vocal trio. For the last several years, Jennifer has dedicated her talent to the performance of jazz alone and is loving every minute of it.

Jennifer has gained a great deal of singing experience in all facets of the industry, from live performance to studio work. She has recorded five albums. Her most recent release, Things We Said Today, is a shining example of Jennifer’s brand of jazz, and sound bytes are available on her web site, www.jenniferlauletta.com.

Jennifer is currently recording a new CD to be entitled "Jennifer - Shades of k.d." which will be a new interpretation of some of the k.d. Lang hits, as well as Jennifer's original works.
