Grit, groove and feel-good funk from the Snarky Puppy maestro

In 2014 Bill Laurance’s debut solo album went straight to the top of the jazz charts. As keyboard player for the Grammy-winning transatlantic outfit Snarky Puppy, Laurance captures Snarky’s fizzing, freewheeling spirit and catchily riff-laden flat-out funk in his original trio compositions.

There is also cool minimalism and fleet-footed improvisation that adds up to a captivating blend from one of today’s most original and creative forces.

"a maestro at making pieces that sound like movie scores... fit with earthier soul, funk and jazz grooves"
