Album Notes
'What am I Looking For?' was singer-songwriter, Jean Laughlin’s third collaboration with co-producers, arranger Jim Martin,and sound engineer Freddie Breitberg. Jim’s always hip big band charts light up Jean’s big band tunes, and his hauntingly beautiful string orchestrations back up each of her ballads with loving care.
Solos by well known Chicago jazz musicians Frank Caruso (piano,) Jim Gailloreto (tenor sax,) Tom Garling (trombone,) and John McLean (guitar,) add another luscious layer to the album.

“Jean’s songs are like a self-help book put to music. I pop 'What am I Looking For?' in the cd player, turn it up, and dance around while I clean to jazzy affirmations such as 'Nobody’s Perfect' or cry as Jean soothes the painful realities of watching my kids grow up in 'Be a Man.' I call it my ‘Jean Therapy.’”

Entertaining Jazz CD
Jean Laughlin's "What Am I Looking For?" is a telling and engrossing jazz collection that is sure to uplift, inspire, and most importantly, entertain. Laughlin's smooth, controlled, inviting timbre connects with listeners on a personal level. "Take a Risk" touts all of the features that make this album memorable - a captivating big-band musical platform, a well-written motivational theme, and a stunning vocal performance. "Don't be Afraid" places the limelight on Laughlin's comforting voice and takes on a more easy-listening vibe. Furthermore, "It's O.K. to Disagree" really shines in the area of instrumentation, displaying remarkably fitting and unforgettable brass and woodwind arrangements. Polished to perfection by top notch production, fans of jazz and easy listening will discover pure bliss with this winsome collection.
