So nice to see somebody carrying on the tradition of a Bill Evans, Dave Brubeck & Vince Guaraldi.
Transport his third album released in 2012 makes you feel as if it’s the 60s again. Every song shines with harmonies and explosive improvisations you’d expect from the greats of jazz. Swings & Roundabouts is another off this album/CD that shows his talent beyond his years.
This British born pianist excels in everything he’s done thus far.
Lapthorn’s composition Bark and the Bite from Seventh Sense (2nd album-2007) would make Brubeck proud.
If he hasn’t captured much attention in the States yet, I’d say it’s already long overdue. This man can more than play.
You Tube definitely needs more of his songs posted as well.
If you have never heard of him, well you have now. Turn On! When jazz was on fire, he brings it all back.
