Laurie Z. will always be remembered for her improvisations created in concert from audience suggestions. Laurie would ask for a theme and musical key. This video clip shows the actual improv creation of “For The Love of a Child” (in E flat) – Composed in concert at the Torrance Cultural Arts Center on September 7, 1996. “The Mysterious Painter” was also created during this concert. (Both songs can be found on Laurie’s recording “Roots – The Solo Piano Album,” which received 8 Grammy nomination considerations.)
Laurie Z. passed away in 2006. At Laurie’s request, we continue to promote her music and master her unreleased works for future release so that the world can continue to enjoy her music.
