ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
She has a killer voice, a sparkling personality, and can really interpret a lyric. When Laura sings, you feel every emotion she conveys, and that is art.

David Fink - Co-owner - Acorn Theater in Three Oaks, MI

Laura Freeman adds a fresh new talented sound to our Midwest Ballroom radio show on WDCB. Her album "Something Cool"
includes many heartfelt songs and covers of tunes from the Great American Songbook. Her back up musicians are quality players.When Laura sings, she sounds like she is individually speaking to her listeners and personally presenting the lyrics to all the songs to them. This is a great produced CD!

John "Radio" Russell. Midwest Ballroom Saturdays 5-7 P.M. 90.9 FM in Chicago and wdcb.org worldwide.

(Meadowlark) it’s a seven minute song with a foregone conclusion. But she made me forget what that conclusion was until right when she sang it.”

Stephen Schwartz

Laura Freeman’s debut CD is delightful. Freeman is on her game. Singing a scoche lower than before gives her supported sound with cleaner pitches enabling a thousand layers of rich interpretation. In Freeman’s care, Susan Werner’s I Can’t Be New” is sensuous and jazzy. “It’s A Lovely Day,” combined with “I Got the Sun In the Morning”, and ”Orange Colored Sky” recalls chirpy ingénues from Thirties movies. Instrumental interludes throughout are lush. The typically perky “Tea for Two” becomes a tender daydream under Freeman’s wistful interpretation. Dolly Parton’s “Jolene” presented in three part harmony with Beckie Menzie and Marianne Murphy Orland is a frank message of womanhood. Freeman builds “Paint Your Wagon” from a search for something lost to promising new adventure. Its blue grassy- banjo accompaniment is so right. The title track, “Something Cool” is glorious. Freeman finds the hope, sorrow and ultimately the truth of that lonely woman at the bar. “Meadowlark” is a grand flight of voice, hope, and discovery. The mix is fun-- doo wop, pop, jazz ( yummy scat on “Hand in Hand”) country and meaty ballads. Beckie Menzie’s imaginative arrangements are meaningful contributions to this fine debut CD.

Beautiful recording
Laura has one of the most amazing voices I have ever heard. Her recording of "Meadowlark" alone is worth the price of the CD. The whole album is really beautiful. I particularly love her version of "Jolene" which also features the wonderful Beckie Menzie. Highly recommended!!
