This is a guy that I just heard on the radio a few weeks ago. I absolutely love his sound. The classical and jazz influenced keyboard playing is wonderful on its own, but the arrangements are the real standouts, with film score quality strings and ambient electronics contributing equally at different points. One of the lessons that I take from Bill Laurance is to avoid being constrained by narrow stylistic boundaries. While the music is obviously connected to his parallel gig as a film composer, there's also influence from non-Western/World music in places as well as fusion, electronica, and his equally eclectic membership in the band Snarky Puppy. I can honestly say that his album doesn't sound quite like any other jazz album that I've heard in recent memory.
