“Extraordinary work. Every element and every moment contribute unerringly to an unforgettable, quite remarkable whole.” Roy Sander, critic and columnist
“... it could be a masterwork not unlike her idol's.” David Finkle, Back Stage
"Krauz kept the King sweetness in 'Will You Love Me Tomorrow?' while turning it into a jazzy ballad. In answer to the song's question--yes, Laurie Krauz, after this show and it's brilliant song interpretations, I will love you tomorrow ... and always."
"Laurie, with able assist from the band and poignant, '60s-styled backup girls, ended on a powerful remodeled version of 'Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?' We will, Laurie. And where you lead, we will follow." Charles Truenski, Leave it to Beaverhausen
is a unique work of contemporary jazz....
Although it is not yet a CD, Tapestry Rewoven
promises to deliver its own stamp of 'classic.'" Elizabeth Ahlfors, Cabaret Scenes
“Certainly a departure from the way the songs were originally presented, the jazz stylings of Krauz and Kojak and the group were a perfectly natural progression, so seamlessly and imaginatively were the American Pop Idiom and the American Jazz Idiom combined in this respectful and highly satisfying amalgam of disparate styles. The audience ‘ate it with a spoon’ and showed their love and enthusiasm with a standing ovation, hoots and hollers.” Jan Wallman, Nite Life Exchange
“From the moment the show began, the audience completely came on board for the ride. And what a ride it was.” Ligia Fernandez, Broadway Café Society
“Without a doubt, Krauz has the voice and the sensitivity to do justice to any of Carole King
’s classic songs.” Cassie Newman, Cabaret Exchange
“A scat specialist who can project heartbreak, strength, vulnerability, and feminine grace within a single number, Krauz wowed the appreciative Wednesday night crowd. It felt like a serendipitous fusion of the turbulent 1970s and the challenging yet hopeful early-2000s. The songs are all from King’s Tapestry
album, and the notion of revisiting the work of a fine artist in this manner proved a great one. Here’s hoping Krauz doesn’t stay away from our fair city too long. Les Spindle, Back Stage West
