About SLR 5⎜New Band EX
A sneak peek at bassist Sal La Rocca’s new band, SLR 5, and their upcoming release Joker with Maayan Smith (tenor sax), Phil Abraham (trombone), Igor Gehenot (piano) and Noam Israeli (drums).
Sal La Rocca, one Belgium‘s 🇧🇪 finest bass players with an illustrious career behind (and ahead) of him, is surrounding himself with young talent for this new exciting quintet. All new material and adventurous group interplay is on the menu !
Sal La Rocca is originally from Seraing, Belgium, near LIEGE. He was first a Rock guitarist, but switched to the bass as his instrument of choice after hearing (for the first time) music by several jazz greats. After switching, he taught himself how to play by the age of 23. Over time, he become one of the most “in demand” double bassists in Belgium and in the European theater. Starting in the mid 80’s, Sal has toured and performed with a wide array of musicians on the European continent. The 90’s saw him expanding his presence with world tours. His list of celebrity musicians he performed with continued to grow, adding well known names like Lee Konitz, Harold Land, Philip Catherine, Dani Klein feat. Vaya Con Dios and Toots Thielemans to his musical resume.
