Saskia Laroo - trumpet, upright bass; Warren Byrd - piano, vocals, bongo
Brand new project and another change of pace from our Dutch jazz diva from the Netherlands, teaming as two with her amazing melifluous trumpet vis a vis Monk-master Warren Byrd pianist/composer/vocalist for a Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk tribute. The duo's tours through Brazil, Hong Kong, Thailand, Netherlands, Russia, and USA come to fruition in their first Duo album. The CD mood swings with Duo Laroo/Byrd covers of vintage Miles and Monk favorites as well as the duo's new compositions, Byrd's scats and hand drums, Laroo's toggles between trumpet and upright bass -- 100% Organic Jazz

I love jazz because I am a singer and jazz inspires me.
I was first exposed to jazz when I was a baby. I grew up in a a musical family.
The best show I ever attended was Dianne Reeves with Romero Lubambo in Rio de janeiro, and Youn Sun Nah at the Vancouver
Jazz festival in 2010.
The first jazz record I bought was Sarah Vaughan.
My advice to new listeners is keep your ears and heart opened for good music.
