Larry Coryell and Kenny Drew, Jr.

Kendrick Oliver

Larry Coryell is one of the world’s acknowledged guitar masters. He has been called the “godfather of fusion,” but is truly one of the most eclectic musicians playing today. Delving into virtually all styles of music, Coryell is a Renaissance artist, performing and recording with his own groups (like The 11th House), and with other virtuosos as diverse as Charles Mingus, Paco De Lucia, Chick Corea and L. Subramaniam.
