About

LaurieLangI’m a jazz musician,mother, teacher, friend and lover of beautiful music that expresses something from the soul. I’ve been playing the bass around the Madison-area and parts beyond for a couple of decades.

There are tons of great bass players in the genre of jazz and I love them all. I feel most a kin to the composer/bandleader bassists like Charlie Haden and Charles Mingus. Haden for his big, beautiful, deep foundational melodic sounds and his community building band projects and Mingus for his creativity and drive in establishing a groove and his amazing ability to compose for specific musicians and calling them to blend those unique voices in ensemble.
