Laila Biali Trio
Live from Frankie's Jazz Club, a streamed jazz concert
“A voice that makes the listener shudder it’s so rounded and pure”—Montreal Gazette
Keyboardist/vocalist Laila Biali moves effortlessly between incandescent contemporary jazz and absorbing modern pop. An acclaimed composer, deeply personal lyricist, and acute interpreter, the Toronto-based Vancouverite has taken home a JUNO for Vocal Jazz Album of the Year. In Laila’s eclectic and energetic live show, melodies take thrilling left turns and bold choruses give way to thoughtful instrumental interludes. One minute Biali is soaring over a hard-charging, bluesy storm, the next she’s pouring out her soul on an impassioned ballad. It’s jazz, it’s pop, it can’t be put into a box… but it’s definitely beautiful.
With Jodi Proznick, bass and Ben Wittman, drums.
