Personalities | Larry Coryell | Sixties | Jazz & Blues

(Guitar, b. 1943)

Guitarist Larry Coryell got his start in New York with Chico Hamilton. He was a trailblazer of both free jazz and jazz-rock fusion in groups such as the Free Spirits – with saxophonist Jim Pepper and drummer Bob Moses – and in vibist Gary Burton’s band. A remarkable technician, Coryell also ventured into free-jazz territory with the Jazz Composers Orchestra Association, dug deeper in to pyrotechnic fusion with the Eleventh House and performed crystalline acoustic jazz in the mid-1970s.
