LAURA ROTH, described as “the widely touring Vegas-style entertainer,” and the “show stopper, (New York Post)” who has performed one-woman shows before thousands at major casino hotels, resorts, gated communities and theaters throughout the East, is proud to announce her latest musical collaboration with HUI COX, the highly regarded producer, composer, Grammy nominee, and recipient of two grants for composition from the National Endowment for the Arts, who has toured the world and recorded with Cab Calloway, Odetta, Liza Minnelli, Melba Moore, Wilson Pickett, Stanley Turrentine, Richie Havens, The Temptations, The Four Tops, and many more of the greatest names in show business. Their very first joint appearance will be at “the old church” at 13 1/2 Garfield Street in Glens Falls, New York, on Saturday, June 3, 2017 at 7 PM.
Although Laura and Hui have separately performed a variety of musical genre, they have each come home to their deepest musical love, jazz. In doing so, they are calling upon the works of Ella Fitzgerald, Cole Porter, Chaka Kahn, Chick Correa, Sting, Gershwin, and others. Such diversity is possible, they believe, because virtually any song played with a unique approach and freedom can become jazz. Laura will sing in this 90 minute concert and Hui will back Laura in special arrangements as he plays electric, acoustic, classical, MIDIed 7-string guitar, mandolin, and electric bass, from his lifetime collection of nearly thirty stringed instruments.
