FivePlay creates original music that nourishes mind and heart. Their unique style speaks to a wide audience, from savvy listeners to those hearing jazz for the first time. The repertoire ranges from burning post-bop, Afro-Cuban and Brazilian grooves to music set to poetry, atmospheric ballads, and extended, unusual compositions. Their three recordings have received extensive airplay both in the United States and abroad.
Co-led by husband and wife team guitarist/composer Tony Corman and pianist/composer Laura Klein, the members of FivePlay are long-time musical associates who have played together in numerous and varied settings. Dave Tidball plays reeds with Paul Smith on bass, joined by Jason Lewis on drums. The resulting on-stage alchemy generates adventurous, interactive and exciting performances.
