Later this month, guitarist Julian Coryell, in tribute to his late father, the legendary Larry Coryell, will lead a new incarnation of the jazz-rock band the 11th House on a brief West Coast tour. The 11th House’s latest album, Seven Secrets, was released earlier this month on Savoy Jazz. We asked Coryell a few questions via email. Tour dates and links can be found below the Q&A. Look out for Julian’s tribute to his father in the July/August of JazzTimes and on JazzTimes.com.
JazzTimes: Seven Secrets features two great talents we lost before its release in early June: drummer Alphonse Mouzon, and your father, Larry Coryell. Describe the sessions for the album: the energy, the camaraderie. Are there any particular anecdotes that stand out in your mind now?
