“one of these days, perhaps the music world will recognize the stature and tonal beauty of former Chicagoan Hobgood’s pianism.” – Chicago Tribune

Pianist Laurence Hobgood has enjoyed a multi-faceted and dynamic career. From 1995-2013, Hobgood was the musical director for Kurt Elling, playing on, composing/arranging for, and co-producing all of Elling’s albums, all of which either won, or were nominated for, a Grammy Award. But now, Hobgood has stepped to the forefront. As DownBeat Magazine put it after a recent performance, “Hobgood obviously embraced his leadership role, playfully interacting with the audience and providing insight between each composition. Whatever he ends up doing next with his pen and piano, it will no doubt be swinging. And he’ll have plenty of fans anxiously awaiting to hear his future projects.”

style: straight-ahead jazz
