New Album Out Now
Lisbon, Portugal – November 13, 2018 – Following the international success of the 2016 debut, The Michael Lauren All Stars are back to prove lightening can indeed strike twice with Old School/Fresh Jazz.
“All are of great beauty. It is difficult to opt for one in particular,” said La Habitacion del Jazz of The Michael Lauren All Stars’ sophomore release. Far from wrong, it is hard to pinpoint a standout among the upbeat jazz and funk found within the 16-tracks that make up such a solid multi-stylistic jazz record. It is wonderfully crafted from start to finish from “More Soul” to “You Want It You Got It” to “Lisboa Boogaloo” to “Virgin In Times Square” to “Song Of Bernadette.” Each song carries the weight of the album with ease, which is no surprise with Michael Lauren at the helm.
Drumming since the age of eight, Michael Lauren has known music was as much a part of his existence as food and water. In between his childhood behind his first drum set and today, he has done everything and then some in regards to making the most out of his talents. He has performed with a multitude of musicians including Paul Anka, Tom Jones, Chuck Berry, Tom Harrell and many more, and at venues near and far including Radio City Music Hall, Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center – just to name a few. As a seasoned educator, Michael relocated from New York City to Portugal to become the professor of drum set studies at Escola Superior de Música e Artes do Espetáculo.
A thrilling, diverse and heart-felt ride is what one can expect from The Michael Lauren All Stars’ Old School/Fresh Jazz. Lauren notes of the record, “It presents a mix of duets and larger ensemble pieces which not only showcases my versatility as a drummer but also highlights the talents of the All Stars.”
