LaVerne Butler, a New Orleans native, has released two stunning albums on Chesky Records: No Looking Back and Day Dreamin'. According to Jazziz magazine, "No Looking Back was a bebopper's delight -- a standards-oriented, often hard-swingin' effort boasting passionate solos ... [while] Day Dreamin' is an acoustic gem."

Rob Bargad - Piano

Produced by David Chesky

Recorded by Bob Katz

This album was made with the purest audio path, using the very best microphones, mic preamps, analog-to-digital converters, recorders, and cables with careful attention to detail to produce the most transparent and natural sound available today.


"Butler has a flexible voice that is more than serviceable. She pays close attention to both the lyrics and original melodies. At the same time, she's able to personalize them attractively."

- Michael Ullman, Stereophile
