artist info

Larry Coryell was born in Galveston, Texas and attended the University of Washington. He moved to New York City in 1965 and became a pioneer of jazz fusion. He formed The Eleventh House Band in 1973 and The Guitar Trio with jazz fusion guitarist John McLaughlin and flamenco guitarists Paco de Lucia in 1979. While on tour in Europe, they filmed Meeting of the Spirits at Royal Albert Hall in London. He published his autobiography, Improvising: My Life in Music in 2007 and continues to tour worldwide.

Together with his younger brother, the late jazz saxophonist Michael Brecker, trumpeter Randy brecker led bands such as Dreams and the Brecker Brothers, and recorded and toured with Jaco Pastorius’ Word of Mouth big band. Today, he is a sought after session musician and has performed and recorded with Bruce Springsteen, Charles Mingus, Spryo Gyra and many others.

Before joining The Eleventh House Band, drummer Alphonse Mouzon played briefly in the seminal jazz fusion band, Weather Report. He has performed and recorded with Herbie Hancock, Miles Davis, Stevie Wonder, Carlos Santana and many more. Today he composes, arranges and produces music and leads his own label, Tenacious Records.

Keyboardist Mike Mandel grew up in rural Yakima, Washington less than 50 miles from his childhood friend Larry Coryell. They formed the band Checkers in 1960, and he joined the Eleventh House Band in 1974, lending funky, synthesizer driven style to many tracks.

Bassist Danny Trifan was featured on all six of The Eleventh House albums. He joined Blood, Sweat and Tears in 1976 and played on two albums. More recently, he has played with David Sanborn and Tom Waits.
