Women Compose Jazz!


A special evening of seldom heard jazz gems composed by women, from classics by Lil Hardin Armstrong and Bernice Petkere, swinging tunes by Mary Lou Williams, Melba Liston, and Marian McPartland, to music by contemporary masters Eliane Elias, Joanne Brackeen and Renee Rosnes, and some originals by Laura Klein.

About the Artists


Laura Klein: piano

Carla Kaufman: bass

Kelly Fasman: drums


Laura Klein (bandleader/pianist/composer) is delighted to be leading this celebration of women jazz composers. When she was first starting to play and compose jazz, she heard Marian McPartland, Mary Lou Williams, and Joanne Brackeen perform live on numerous occasions, and was inspired and influenced by these brilliant musicians. Laura has recorded her own compositions with FivePlay Jazz Quintet, Triceratops, and vibraphonist Ted Wolff. She has appeared with her own groups at numerous venues, including SF Jazz, Piedmont Piano Company, Vallejo Jazz, Pacifica Performances, and Sacramento Jazz Cooperative, and has been featured on KCSM’s “In the Moment” and “Desert Island Jazz”. This is her second appearance at Sunset Music and Arts.


Carla Kaufman (bass) is equally at home in the classical and jazz music worlds. She has played in many orchestras including the Berkeley Symphony , Vallejo Symphony, The Women’s Philharmonic , California Symphony, and the Russian Chamber Orchestra. She has shared the stage with many notable musicians including Clark Terry, Michael Greensill and Wesla Whitfield, Calvin Keys, Ed Reed, Maria Muldaur, Frank Morgan, Noel Jewkes, and Donald Bailey, and is a first call bassist for Bay Area vocalists.


Kelly Fasman (drums) is a dynamic performer whose propulsive playing adds excitement and dynamic range in any musical setting. She has performed with Kenny Loggins, The Moody Blues, Joan Baez, and Joan Rivers. She was the house drummer for The American Musical Theatre of San Jose, and has worked with Teatro Zinzanni, Broadway By the Bay, and Theatreworks. Kelly is the powerhouse of the 17 piece jazz orchestra, the Morchestra. She is a highly in-demand performer and educator on the Bay Area scene.
