Sounds Visual Radio Presents: How Deep Is Your Crate Episode 49 w/ Emiliano Lasansky

On this episode of the Sounds Visual Radio spinoff series How Deep Is Your Crate, bassist / composer Emiliano Lasansky phoned in to talk about his new album, The Optimist, and to share some of his favorite records.

Emiliano Lasansky proudly presents his debut album, The Optimist, available worldwide on Outside In Music on June 21, 2024. The 2024 composition award winner in the Bridges Competition – David Baker Prize at the Ravinia Music Center, 2023 ASCAP Foundation Award (in composition) recipient, and a graduate from the prestigious Herbie Hancock Institute of Jazz Performance at UCLA, proudly presents an album of melody-driven compositions, brought to life by his band featuring Devin Daniels on alto saxophone, Javier Santiago on piano, Benjamin Ring on drums, and Genevieve Artadi – vocals on “Love In Small Spaces,” “Things As They Are,” and “Young Corn.”

Lasansky’s melodies have the potential to simultaneously serve as vehicles to memories and past experiences, and to evoke optimistic anticipation for the future. Lasansky elaborates, “my work attempts to unify elements of the past and present in exciting and unexpected new ways.  I also strive for my work to be accessible to a wide audience with hidden layers of subtlety for those that desire to take a closer look.”
