Lauren Koval: No Complaints No Regrets
Title: No Complaints No Regrets
Label: CD Baby

Lauren Koval's debut CD, "No Complaints, No Regrets", is a collaboration with and tribute to the legendary 85 year old pianist-singer Page Cavanaugh. From the first selection "Come Rain Or Come Shine", listeners know they are in for a delightful experience. Lauren's beautiful voice, full of emotion and feeling, follows an impeccable piano introduction. The piano interlude is melodic and swinging and the closing vocal warm and romantic. The end result is a definitive treatment of one of the classics of American popular music. Harold Arlen and Johnny Mercer would be pleased. ~Scott Yanow~ The biggest surprise of this album is the sheer versatility that comes from this foursome. Everybody sings and they all work their parts out with perfect harmony. You'd think that the Four Freshmen had joined them in the studio. When they join Koval in singing "All I Do Is Dream of You" the beauty of it all takes over. ~Jim Santella L.A. Jazz Scene Her rendition of Rodgers and Hammerstein's classic "It might as well be spring" steers away from the usual melancholy torch song, presenting instead a brighter interpretation that's likely to stay with you long after the last chords have been played. Likewise, her unique 'swing' version of "Embraceable You" is also a bona-fide crowd pleaser, a true chanteuse in every sense of the word ~Leo Buck The O.C. Blade~ " Her singing is purely elegant, and the emotions expressed with control are extremely pleasant to listen to. This album convinces listeners the richness of talented vocalists in the US." ~Masamichi Okazaki~ "She has a beautiful and well controlled voice that songwriters and fans of vintage standards should love." ~Scott Yanow L.A. Jazz Scene Born and raised in Bellevue Washington Lauren relocated to Los Angeles in 2002 and has been performing non stop with Duos, Trios and Big Bands including the Jimmy Dorsey Orchestra, which travels throughout the United States. The Page Cavanaugh Trio (often compared to the trio led by Nat King Cole) was a hit, appearing in films like Romancing The High Seas (starring Doris Day) and A Song Is Born (starring Danny Kaye and Virginia Mayo). Among their best selling records were "The Three Bears", "Walkin' My Baby Back Home" and "All Of Me." Page has worked with Mel Torme, Frank Sinatra and many many more talented Artists. Lovers of the Great American Songbook will certainly love hearing Lauren Koval and the ageless Page Cavanaugh. 'Lauren sings these great songs with deep feeling and insightful understanding. She and Page are a wonderful team.' ~. Michael Feinstein ~.
