Berklee alumni band The George Lacson Project will be performing at the Jazz Panorama Festival in Torrent, Spain.

The George Lacson Project (GLP) is organized and led by bass player George Lacson, originally from St. Louis, MO USA, the talented bassist is a recognized master of his craft.

Throughout George's career, he has performed with world-renowned artists such as John Lee Hooker Jr. and shared the stage with household names like Lenny Kravitz and Z.Z. Top. He has also achieved recording credits on a Grammy nominated album. George’s own project, the GLP, began in San Francisco, enticing listeners’ ears with powerful, inspired music that’s built around a backbone of strong musicianship.

At Berklee College of Music in Valencia, Spain he met a new group of incredibly talented musicians and began the newest chapter of The George Lacson Project. “Tell Me” is the first single of the band and is representative of this new sound.

Today, the GLP melds traditional Jazz, Funk, and R&B with the innovative and modern influences of contemporary music. The group consists of George Lacson on bass, Gonzalo Eyzaguirre (Chile) on drums, Peter Eddins (Kansas City) on piano and keyboards, Clifford Gordon (Houston) on the EWI (electronic wind instrument) and the beautiful voice of Cinnamon Denise (St Louis).

GLP’s music has been described as soulful, with ever-changing innovative rhythms, well-constructed songwriting/arrangements and world-class musicianship. The group has gained a significant following, largely based on their captivating live performances.
