Vocalist Lauren Koval is one of the best singers in the classic jazz arena.  She sings with warmth, great definition, and clarity, and has superb stage presence. Typhoon Restaurant at Santa Monica Airport has presented wonderful evenings of Big Bands on most Monday evenings and smaller ensembles on other evenings; the room is a wonderful place to listen and see live jazz music and the ambience is perfect. Tuesday, February 18, 2014, was a lovely night with Lauren Koval with the Ed Mann Sextet backing her and playing some of arrangements by their pianist, Paul McDonald.  The Ed Mann Sextet includes Daniel Heffernan (tenor sax), Duane Benjamin (trombone), Ed Mann (trumpet), Paul McDonald (piano), Kevin O’Neal (bass) and Sammy Kestenholtz (drums).   These guys have played very well together for quite a long while and each has a number of outstanding credits in the music business.
