Interview with Laurence Elder on
The Jazz Messenger
Friday, November 30, 2007, 10:30-Noon

The popular area pianist/vocalist/composer will talk with host Brian Keena about his upcoming show at Gravity Lounge December 1st. He'll be bringing his New York band to Charlottesville for the first time for this special concert.

Laurence Elder's fresh, inspired blend of jazz, rock, blues and pop, along with his "triple threat" talents as a singer-songwriter-pianist, set his music apart as a vital new original sound. Already a signed artist on ESC Records in Europe and in Japan on the P-Vine label, Laurence has recorded with Grammy winners Paquito D'Rivera and Peter Erskine, who both appear as guests on his critically acclaimed debut album, "Surrounded."
