July 28, 2009-New York, New York-Laurence Hobgood was described by jazz legend Dave Brubeck as one of the most incredible pianist’s he ever heard. Obviously this was a compliment of the highest order and one that any artist would be honored to receive.
Hobgood lives up to his billing on his recent solo release When The Heart Dances on the Naim Jazz imprint. When the pianist is not producing his own music he supports Kurt Elling with his trio.
Hobgood finds himself in good company once again at Naim Jazz as Elling turns the tables and supports him and contributes his vocal talents to the recording, making it a varied collection of instrumentals and vocal treatments. The legendary bass player Charlie Haden also joins the session. Haden’s credentials are numerous dating back to the 50’s with Ornette Coleman and Keith Jarrett’s Trio.
The stellar support helps to make When The Heart Dances a special experience for all jazz fans. It is sure to become a Naim Jazz classic to remember and will continue to enrich their diverse catalog of artists.
When The Heart Dances will be released August 11th on Naim Jazz and available through iTunes and Amazon.com. Visit the Laurence Hobgood website for more information and updates on the release.
