2019 EU issue on 180g 2LP = Recorded in front of an enthusiastic audience in the Philharmonie in Cologne and carried by the celebrated 18-member WDR Big Band under the direction of its chief conductor Bob Mintzer (the well-known tenor saxophonist, longtime member of the Yellowjackets and leader of his own Grammy-winning Bob Mintzer Big Band ), Laurance reinvents some of his earlier recorded pieces, but in a much larger style. “I always imagined these compositions to be for an orchestra. It's a rare chance to hear your own music played by an ensemble of this caliber, ”said Laurance. In a way, this recording is an extension of Snarky Puppy's orchestral collaboration with the Dutch metropolis Orkest. With its film musical accents, surprises and unexpected twists, the album Live at the Philharmonie, Cologne is undoubtedly Laurance's most daring project so far.

The British Jazz Journal put it this way: "If jazz also wants to appeal to future generations, then people like Bill Laurance are needed to renew the relevance of this type of music."Keyboarder Bill Laurance, founding member of the triple Grammy-winning, internationally acclaimed group Snarky Puppy, which was chosen by the readers of Down-Beat magazine as the jazz band of 2017, has long been a musician outside the bounds of this popular, cross-genre band Jazz and funk band. Laurance has explored electronic music, fascinating modal jams, drum and bass rhythms, enchanting world music grooves and a whole host of other moods and styles, especially classical music.
