Lauren Ambrose and the Leisure Class

Lauren Ambrose is best known as the actress who played Claire Fisher on the HBO drama "Six Feet Under," but these days she's fronting a Dixieland jazz style outfit known as the Leisure Class. The transition from actor to singer isn't always an easy (or successful) journey, but Ambrose is blessed with a sweet vibrato and raw power that may see her through. On this live recording from the band's first show at Joe's Pub last November, Ambrose infuses hot jazz with a bluesy zeal while the rest of the outfit gets down old-time jazz style.
