Laurence Hobgood's new February 2016 release, Honor Thy Fathers, is a stunning dedication to the personal influences and inspirations of the virtuosic pianist, composer, arranger, and educator. Best known for his 18–year tenure as musical director for Kurt Elling, Laurence Hobgood played on, composed/arranged for, and co–produced 10 acclaimed albums by the singer – including the GRAMMY Award–winning Dedicated To You: Kurt Elling Sings The Music Of Coltrane and Hartman, named Best Vocal Jazz Album of 2009. As a leader, the pianist has released such acclaimed discs as When The Heart Dances (2007), a duet session with iconic bassist Charlie Haden; PoemJazz (2012), an adventurous collaboration with U.S. poet laureate Robert Pinsky; and the 2013 holiday collection Christmas, which the Chicago Tribune’s Howard Reich called “one of the most appealing recordings of an already distinguished career.” Honor Thy Fathers features original compositions and novel arrangements of popular tunes.
Now it's time while holding Laurence Hobgood and his new CD, we will remember this beautiful theme "When The Heart Dances" that play a duet with the legendary bassist Charlie Haden (RIP):
