About this image

Laura Ainsworth and producer/pianist/arranger Brian Piper with the 13-piece horn section of top-flight North Texas jazz men who played on the big band tracks for Laura's album, "Necessary Evil." They are on the title track and the great new song, "Last Train to Mercerville." They don't get to do too many real, all in the studio at once, big band sessions, so it was a special night, with many Facebook photos taken. It was also special since many of them had worked with Laura's late father, the great sax/clarinet player and arranger Billy Ainsworth, and told great stories about him and the days when sessions like this were regular events.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
