According to The Minneapolis Star Tribune, Laura Cavianiís debut CD "Dreamlife" was ...in a word, outstanding. Marian McPartland found it ...sparkling and inventive. The Jazz Times called her second release, "As One", stunningly fresh. Her Holiday album, "Angels We Haven Heard", was considered this seasonís finest new jazz CD of holiday music by the St. Paul Pioneer Press. As pianist, Caviani has performed and recorded with vocalist Karrin Allyson and has toured with her group throughout the U.S. and Japan. As composer, she has been commissioned by both the Kansas City Symphony and the Central Wisconsin Symphony.
