Merging art and science, Larry shares with his audience the philosophical, mechanical, and musical approach to a genre rich in expression and improvisation.

Throughout his master class, Larry focuses on his love of blues and jazz, and helps his audience to explore the different approaches comping and soloing over choruses, as well as how to support a solo musically and develop personal solos. His goal during his courses are to help players better understand improvisation, rhythm playing, and soloing skills to help each musician find his or her voice.

Larry’s classes offer the absolute most in diverse opportunities for students to not only interact and understand a top professional and his techniques, experiences and history, but to gain personal knowledge about the world of music through this living legend’s eyes.
