Double Bill - Bryan and the Aardvarks (Featuring - David Binney) and Laila and Smitty
Sun, August 06, 2017
Bryan and the Aardvarks - lush, cinematic, contemporary jazz, chamber like, and euphonious, infused with a wistful pop sensibility. The imaginatively lyrical, eccentrically inventive Bryan and the Aardvarks make music that is equal parts an epic-scale modern jazz adventure, a stargazing sonic dreamscape, and a soundtrack for a non-existent science fiction film. A self-professed “film junkie,” Copeland drew inspiration from the film scores of composers like Jerry Goldsmith (Alien) and Vangelis (Blade Runner), which swirl together with his forward-looking jazz instincts and captivating influences from sophisticated rock songwriters like David Bowie, Nick Drake, and Elliott Smith.
