Bill Laurance Flint Review

London based pianist and producer Bill Laurance, founding member of the much acclaimed Snarky Puppy, released with “Flint” his first solo album in May this year. It is stylistically very expansive and genre-crossing, bringing in influences of electronic music while its roots stick with Jazz. Laurance creates wide and fascinating soundscapes with his piano playing, often accompanied with synthesized strings that add an effect of space and openness, as it can be heard on opening track “Neverending City”. The bassline is very concise, leaving space to the┬ápiano melodies to develop. Often, as on “The Good Things” or on “Ready Wednesday”, very decently played break ┬ábeat drums complete the picture. Flint from Bill Laurance is definitely a new 2014 release to consider.
