Andy LaVerne, a veteran of over five decades in performing, composing and educating often teaches masterclasses at the famed Jamey Aebersold Summer Jazz Workshop.
At this workshop in 2019 Andy LaVerne met and performed with Zach Brock for the first time. The Grammy Award Winning violinist Zak Brock left huge impression on the pianist. Andy invited Zak to record together three months later. The collaboration between LaVerne the master of reharmonization and contrafacts and Zach the star member of the crossover jazz group Snarky Puppy turned out to be a true rhapsody, with an intriguing program.
“The album is filled with stimulating originals, most of which seem to be newly written for the session.... Shangri-La is another valuable addition to Andy LaVerne’s discography.” - Ken Dryden, The New York City Jazz Record on ‘Shangri-La’ (SCCD 31872)
