SASKIA LAROO & WARREN BYRD (THE NETHERLANDS 2010) 拿露及拜爾特 (荷蘭2010)

Saskia Laroo, trumpeter reared musically in Amsterdam whose international travels never cease, met pianist/vocalist Warren Byrd in Hartford, Connecticut (his hometown), and both have explored the power of music together ever since.

Duo Laroo/Byrd’s renderings for ‘Music Beyond Borders’ in Sep 2010 spurred further co-explorations, leading to their first album as a duo. In the summer of 2011, they released “Collaboration - Two of a Kind: A Tribute to Miles Davis & Thelonious Monk” garnering some critical acclaim. Saskia features herself on bass as well as trumpet, and Byrd doubles on vocals and percussion for an album full of new compositions.

Aside from successful tours in many countries with the Saskia Laroo Band, Salsabop, and Jazzkia to Brazil, Canada, Finland, Greece, Guatemala, India, Mexico, Panama, Oman, Thailand, Russia, Ukraine and the United States, they are currently promoting the project “A Tribute to Kind of Blue” one of jazz’s most influential albums and “Jazz Meets Hip Hop”. Saskia continues to seek to bring people together with music and will soon tour in Turkey; Warren has been composing chamber works.

這位當今最出色的女小號手之一,聯同集鋼琴兼歌唱家的拜爾特,多年來都不忘拓展音樂的新領域。上次訪港合作後他們更激發新意念,第一張唱片《二者同源》亦順利誕生,再一步實踐拜爾特一直以來推動「共融」的人文思想。他們深受世界各處樂迷歡迎,最近正埋首籌備一次「爵士」跟「饒舌」的邂逅。
