Scenes from the Avenue on CD

'Singer-songwriter Laura Baron lives in DC, but her latest CD would make you think she is from New Orleans or Paris. She belts out the blues in a primal, earthy way. But don't be fooled. As often as not, her voice is delicate, reed-thin, pleading, vulnerable -- breathtakingly beautiful. --Pam Rigaux, Frederick News Post, May 2008 ''Scenes from the Avenue" has a distinct, in-the-moment feel, as though recorded on the fly, surrounded by diners and dreamers, burning cigarettes and clinking glasses. And from a fan of all crooners, from Dino to Ella - yes, that's a compliment. I'm not accustomed to writing music reviews, favoring film as the medium most suited to my misguided opinions. But it's possible Laura Baron could change my mind. Most recently I received her latest CD, ''Scenes From the Avenue," and a note to take a listen. So I did. Baron has an easy way with a lyric - she penned most of the songs, here, save for three tracks co-written with frequent collaborator Pat Quinn, and two covers - and an elusive voice. It's easygoing, reminiscent of Keely Smith, but with the bite of Natalie Merchant by way of Sheryl Crow, all held together by a harmony best described as haunting - not a far cry from Sarah McLaughlin. Baron and Company have certainly nailed the jazz element - upon playing the CD on my car stereo, images of an intimate, underground club filled with smoke and song were conjured.' --Nathan Oravec, Frederick Gazette.
