Walle Larsson – After the Night

As a Winnipeg Musician and sax player Walle Larsson had the opportunity to play and create music for many years. Concerts form New York to Tokyo and back and forth across Canada have been a highlight. Composing music for film and TV has been fun but live performance is where it’s at for me. Currently his position as entertainment co-ordinator at Assiniboine Park has afforded many opportunities. His band has performed with the likes of Brian Hughes, Liberty Silver, Les Sabler, Demo Cates and others. Earlier in his career he had the chance to perform with Mel Torme, Tony Bennet, David Clayton Thomas and Toronto R&B group The Lincolns.

Walle comments his new album: “The music business is a never ending cycle of trends that come and go. Fortunately for those of us involved in smooth contemporary jazz there is a common basis of rhythm and melody that stand the test of time.

Being involved in the same style of music since my teenage years has afforded me the opportunity of specializing in my chosen genre. Having composed music and produced half a dozen cds of the music I love has indeed been a pleasure. My next CD After The Night will be released at the Winnipeg Art Gallery August 12/10….see you there!”

After the Night just arrived at CDBaby.
