Baby et Lulu (aka Abby Dobson (Leonardo's Bride and Lara Goodridge (FourPlay, Miriam Lieberman) are so very excited to bring to audiences their third album, aptly named Album Trois.

Baby et Lulu have gathered their usual gang of maestros to record live in the studio - Matt Ottignon (flute, sax, clarinet), Julian Curwin (classical guitar), Marcello Maio (piano, accordion), and Mark Harris (double bass), as well as guest artists to add to the magic, including Baby et Lulu regular Ross Harrington (clarinet, saxophone), Dane Laboyrie (trumpet) and more.
