Larry Coryell, Victor Bailey & Lenny White
Larry Coryell, Victor Bailey & Lenny White Internationally renowned guitarist Larry Coryell appears with a stellar fusion trio featuring the powerful bassist Victor Bailey and the dynamic drummer Lenny White. Coryell is celebrating his new Chesky CD, 3 Guitars by: Larry Coryell, Badi Assad & John Abercrombie. Christened as "a true pioneer of rock-jazz fusion" by the New York Times, and dubbed "the Godfather of Fusion" by Down Beat, Coryell is one of the pioneers of jazz-rock. He brought what amounted to a nearly alien sensibility to jazz electric guitar playing in the 1960s, a hard-edged, cutting tone, phrasing and note-bending that owed as much to blues, rock and even country as it did to earlier, smoother bop influences. His playing can go from the most decibel-heavy, distortion-laden electric work to the most delicate, soothing, intricate lines.
