"Piano Review"

The leisurely pace with which Laura Scarborough brought her piano to tune and her music to life made it seem as if the low-key Highlife Cafe, adequately populated with people involved in books and conversation as it is on most nights, was in for an evening of pleasant background music. But this mellow introduction was merely a warm-up, and after Scarborough set up her mike and amp, the room took on a different demeanor. Not to say that all activity ceased -- of course not -- but for those who sat and listened, or even looked up periodically from what they were doing, from the time she started in on "My Funny Valentine," Scarborough's performance was more than simple ambience. Her selections wandered through some jazz standards like "Summertime" and "Solitude" as well as a number of original compositions, all of them carrying well the delicate and classical bent of this local musician's piano playing. Straight chords played full and true with a few tasteful variations and improvisations, going a half-step off for impact and mood, coming back in a smooth slide. Her singing is reminiscent of Billie Holiday; packed into the high and wispy strains of her vocal lines are the simultaneous vulnerability and power that Lady Day made her own. Of course, this was a quiet show, so the depth or magnitude of her voice was never an issue, and thus never determined. A certain stoic resolve permeated the direct lyrics of her own songs, like the confrontational "Face Up" and "Deception," as well as her instrumentals -- waltzes and blues alike. As the room filled and the volume of the general murmur rose, Scarborough didn't try to compete, preferring instead to sit, play, sing as though she knew they were still listening. And if they weren't, it didn't really matter. Whether she was interpreting Claude Debussy or Jeff Buckley, or offering up her own recent writings, the total focus and inhibited swagger with which she approached every tune suggest that Scarborough's voice won't remain in the background. -- Christopher Hess - Austin Chronicle (2001)
