Live on the Rooftop
Live on the Rooftop • Walle Larsson
Thursday August 9, 2012 at 7:30pm
Known for his intense devotion to his craft and a creative imagination second to none, Walle Larsson has been wowing audiences from New York to Montreal, Toronto to Tokyo with sizzling jazz solos and sultry smooth jazz tones for nearly four decades. Over that time, the six-foot-four Larsson – who possesses a strong stage presence characterized by not only his larger-than life silhouette, but the ability to interact with audiences in a warm, genuine manner – has shared the stage with the likes of legendary jazz greats Mel Torme and the ageless Tony Bennett.
He is currently working his 6th album and is also booking acts for the Lyric Theatre this summer. Always an ambassador for smooth jazz, Larsson hosted a groove jazz show on Winnipeg’s Magic 99.9 FM for 10 years, while at the same time playing regularly at venues around the city. Like a fine wine, Walle Larsson is simply getting better with age, where his hard work, supreme dexterity and creativity will no doubt keep him at the top of his game for years to come.
