Bill Laurance & WDR Big Band
Queen Elizabeth Hall, London.
A brand new collaboration between Snarky Puppy's keyboard virtuoso and the mighty WDR Big Band, led by Bob Mintzer. Alongside his Grammy-winning achievements with Snarky Puppy, Bill Laurance has been pursuing a fascinating solo career, marked by a highly-rated debut album Flint and his most recent release, recorded live at Union Chapel. Widely travelled as soloist and producer, his solo projects demonstrate an intensely individual approach to both acoustic and electric keyboards - and his talent as composer, evidenced in collaborations with dance companies worldwide as well as his own projects - will provide the platform for his new adventures with one of the world's leading jazz big bands, the WDR Big Band, whose own Grammy-winning milestones include albums with the Brecker brothers and Patti Austin.
