Gallery. Residency. Theatre. Music.
For the first time ever, Bill Laurence, an English pianist, founding member of the renowned Brooklyn-based jazz band Snarky Puppy and a Grammy Award winner will make an appearance in Prague.
The limitless musical creativity of his new solo project speaks for a genre-crossing performance where jazz music interweaves with funk, electro or classical piano phases. Is his music a soul testimony, progressive rock, ambient collage or a visually evocative soundtrack? Pointless to wonder. Bill Laurence melts genres arbitrarily yet skilfully only to cast them into melodies so contagious that it is futile to speculate about the sort of music that is running through your veins.
As a pianist, composer, arranger and producer Bill Laurence has performed with stars such as Bobby McFerrin, trip-hop trio Morcheeba, saxophonist Chris Potter or guitarist Lionel Louek, to name some. After his debut album’s release in 2014 he produced another two records.
His most recent one, Aftersun, introduces Bill Laurence together again with his fellows from Snarky Puppy – bassist Michael League and drummer Robert “Sput” Searight.
