CD review: Laurent David – Naked 2019: Video, CD cover

Laurent David, intrepid bassist and virtuoso, sensitive and precise composer, shared the stage with many known artists, (Guillaume Perret, D.Lockwood, Yael Naim, …), putting at the service his electric bass, as enlightened accompanist. Atypical musician, Laurent likes to meet other musicians (David Linx, Ari Hoenig …) and create families, “groups” (M & tal).

He thus accumulates many enriching experiences which inspire him and allow him to draw a path of his own, at the service of music in particular and Art in general. Thus, with Naked, Laurent opens the “Solo” collection of the Durance label.

Using all the components of his favorite instrument, Laurent offers in this opus a unique and exciting journey, composed in New York in winter 2018. Like other illustrious precursors like Jaco Pastorius or Jonas Hellborg, he explores various facets of the instrument but without using loopers or overdubs, preferring to offer chiseled writing (legacy of his classical training) without depriving himself of the improvised framework that is dear to him (legacy of Jazz).

Pushing the instrumental and aesthetic limits Laurent today wears the electric bass at the top of his art.
