Snarky Puppy member Bill Laurence’s ‘Live At The Philharmonie Cologne Jazzline’ documents the performance with the WDR Big Band at Kölner Philharmonie in late 2018. Conductor, bandleader and saxophonist Bob Mintzer arranged the material, which spans Laurance’s first three studio albums: Flint, Swift and Aftersun – the glorious opener ‘The Good Things’ finds Laurance in classical mode before the band pick up steam and craft a hard jazz workout, ‘Ready Wednesday’ is full of drive and energy while ‘Swagtime’ is given a more urgent upgrade from the album version. The incisive horns of ‘Money In The Desert’ ride well on the groove while the funky ‘The Rush’ offers yet more shade and contrast to the set. Superb album that captures Laurance and the band in stunning form.
