There Will Be Trouble

Album Notes
Did you ever hear a cover version of a popular song and think "That's what it's all about!"? Chances are you’ll feel that way about all of the songs on LaVon Hardison's "There Will Be Trouble." Her fourth release -- and by far her most compelling work to date -- comprises ten eclectic selections that prove that great songs are great songs, regardless of genre or age.

Her selections range from the raucous 1925 jazz standard "Sweet Georgia Brown" anchored by stellar baritone sax work from Hans Teuber, to a powerfully intimate re-imagining of Katy Perry's 2010 hit "Firework."

In between, LaVon visits the 1930s ("My Funny Valentine," "Mood Indigo," "It's Only a Paper Moon"); the 1940s ("Frim Fram Sauce"); the 1960s ("Heat Wave," "The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy)," "One Fine Day"); and the 1980s ("Should I Stay or Should I Go").

Each stop on this trip through diverse times and styles will make you smile, or cry, or think about your own journey in a new way. LaVon's remarkable ability as a musical storyteller -- rooted in a lifetime of acting and musical performance -- helps her become a conduit connecting song to listener. And the top-notch musicians she's chosen to work with support her voice at every step with just the right mix of verve and attitude.

Taking this musical journey with her, you can under stand why LaVon was acclaimed as Earshot Jazz's 2017 Northwest Vocalist of the Year and winner of the 2016 Seattle-Kobe Female Jazz Vocalist Audition
