FivePlay creates original music that nourishes mind and heart. Their unique style speaks to a wide audience, from savvy listeners to those hearing jazz for the first time. FivePlay’s repertoire ranges from burning post-bop, Afro-Cuban and Brazilian grooves to music set to poetry, atmospheric ballads, and extended, unusual compositions. Their three recordings have received extensive airplay both in the United States and abroad. Co-led by husband and wife team guitarist/composer Tony Corman and pianist/composer Laura Klein, the members of FivePlay are long-time musical associates who have played together in numerous and varied settings. The resulting on-stage alchemy generates adventurous, interactive and exciting performances.

Want a *real* FivePlay CD?

Some of us still want the physical artifact, with the liner notes, photos, and all the info about the recording. Up till now (2020), we've offered physical CDs through CD Baby. They've been great but are getting out of the business of CD retail, going electronic-only. So if you (like us), want the real deal, email us and we'll take care of you. All our music is available or download from our music page, and now from Bandcamp, too.

New CD Coming Soon!

Dec 2019: We're putting the finishing touches on the artwork for our fourth CD, "Summer Dusk: Studio Sessions".  The album features the band plus a flute choir and, on three tracks, a four-voice vocal ensemble composed of top studio singers from London!
