Louis Cole Big Band
The distinct music of Cole gives us everything from energetic electro-jazz to silky smooth west coast vocal - and it sounds as much like sonic-funk as it sounds like Prince or Beach Boys.
Drummer and producer Louis Cole has made himself noticed all over the world in recent years, as one half of electric jazz duo KNOWER.
In later years the artist has focused more on his solo-career. This resulted in the the record “Time” in 2018. The record was released by the very respectable record label Brainfeeder in collaboration with greats like Thundercat and Brad Mehlau, among others.
When Louis Cole now is doing concerts with the record, he has chosen the direct opposite of boring with his computer and a keyboard controller. He is going all in with a full big-band, and Coles role in the concert is really doing everything. It is just as as natural to see him leading the band, as seing him on keys, singing or playing drums in a fervent groove. According to those who have sen the project live, this is some of the most crazy and cool in this years program. In others words; what else is there to do, than to get your ticket and prepare to enjoy the music and performance of one of the most innovative artists on the American west coast.
