Singer and musical artist Laura Tate’s latest release of live performances is her first compilation highlighting the best of her talent. In original and classic blues tracks, as well as her interpretation of works by other artists. In Live From El Paso, Laura and her band are back together again for her fans and new listeners to discover her rich and remarkable voice.
Far from the venues in Nashville, New York, and LA, that she has played for years, this concert soars to the sky in McKelligan Canyon, a natural amphitheater in the foothills of El Paso’s rugged mountains. Under the bright stars of West Texas and a few miles from the Rio Grande and Mexico, Laura sings her heart out at this benefit concert for the El Paso Community Foundation’s Laura Tate Fund for the Arts, providing arts education for the underserved.
Laura and her band of top Los Angeles area musicians take us on a tour of the ups and downs of love from sultry torch songs to tough love ballads. With crowd favorites from her previous four albums, this “Best of Laura Tate” collection moves smoothly from jazz and blues to rock and Americana, but each selection features Laura’s own interpretation. Critics raved about her take on the Thin Lizzy rock classic “The Boys Are Back in Town”, which she released in 2017 on her “Let’s Just Be Real” CD.
Live From El Paso showcases all of Laura’s abilities and the many sides of a consummate performer with a true passion for music.
The voice and range of Laura Tate is superb, warm and inviting, wonderfully smooth and sultry, and with her background, lends a jazzy and elegance to her performance, I could say it has a mature tranquility, but not in an “Old” way, but in a way that highlights the atmosphere and brings out the best in her music.
