Get this act a Las Vegas residency––NOW. Already a buzz band with its theatrical, audience-wowing live presentation, these recordings show di Lauro to be an excellent singer whose daring, high concept––a fusion of classic ‘20s, Cab Calloway-style burlesque revue with modern R&B and hip-hop flavors––is altogether clever, tuneful and engaging. “Go Head D (Hi-D-Ho),” “Let Me Hear You...,” and the torchy “His Name Is Jack” thrive on call-and-response tactics that take the vitality right into the audience. At its center is di Lauro herself, a performer whose expressive voice is gifted with the grit and tonalities to pull it all off. At the end of the day, this is an act that needs an ambitious manager and a booker with vision.
