BILL LAURANCE picture
British pianist, composer, arranger, and producer Bill Laurance makes expansive, genre-crossing jazz and electronic music. Having studied at the University of Leeds, Laurance has worked with a variety of artists including trip-hop trio Morcheeba, saxophonist Chris Potter, and West African guitarist Lionel Loueke, among others. On his own, he leads the electronic duo the Fix and is a founding member of the eclectic Brooklyn-based jazz collective Snarky Puppy. In 2014, Laurance released his debut solo album, Flint, on GroundUp Music. He returned the following year with Swift. In 2016, Laurance delivered his third solo effort, Aftersun. Inspired by his interest in astronomy and space exploration, the album featured appearances from fellow Snarky Puppy members Michael League and Robert "Sput" Searight, as well as New Orleans percussionist Weedie Braimah.

BILL LAURANCE Live at Ronnie Scott's

Better known as member of American jazz super-group Snarky Puppy, English pianist and composer Bill Laurance collaborates with some other renown artists and leads own bands as well. His trio (with British bassist Jonathan Harvey and Lithuanian drummer Marijus Aleksa) just released their live album, recorded a year and half ago in legendary London's Ronnie Scott's club.

Full-bodied, well composed and perfectly played acoustic nu jazz, in a key of early Phronesis, is a perfect example of best British music of the genre. No use of electronics, sound effects or studio technology. Each song has own face and appeal,delicate applause in a club adds warm atmosphere to almost studio-like recording.

Continuing the decades long tradition of acoustic piano-bass-drums jazz trios, Bill Laurance trio on this release builds a solid bridge from twenty's century to the first decade of the New Millennium. Best acoustic nu jazz looking from today becomes part of jazz history as well. Laurance's "Live At Ronnie Scott's" is a valuable illustration to the British page of it.
