Album Notes
Great "straight-ahead" jazz in the Blue Note label's "Hard Bop" tradition. Features Larry Brown (piano), James Fowler (bass), Joe McCarthy (drums), Kyle Funn (trumpet), and guest musician Peter Fraize (tenor). This is the JAZZ you love to hear!

Washingtonian magazine says, “Larry Brown is a pianist whose rendering of ballads is particularly moving”. This CD, “The Long Goodbye”, has received airplay all over the country, as well as in Brazil and Russia. In 2002 Larry received Wammie nominations (Washington Area Music Assoc) for Best Jazz Group, Best Jazz Instrumentalist, and “The Long Goodbye” (Lush Life Records) won the award for Best Jazz Recording. The Washington Post says of this CD, “there’s no mistaking the music’s seductive allure”.

The Washington Post calls pianist Larry Brown “an artist deserving of greater exposure”. In 2000 Larry appeared on the national jazz cable channel BET On Jazz show “Jazz Discovery” where he won in the instrumentalist category. He has also appeared on their show “Jazz Scene” as a featured artist. In 2000 Larry received Wammie nominations for Best Jazz Group, Best Jazz Instrumentalist, and Best Jazz Recording (“Dryden Street Sessions”). The Post says Brown “evokes the master touch on this consistently entertaining collection of jazz trio performances”.

As an undergraduate at Towson University Larry studied with Stan Kenton’s favorite arranger/composer, Hank Levy. With a Bachelors Degree in Music Theory Larry attended graduate school at Catholic University, where he received his Master of Music degree after studying Composition and Electronic Music with the legendary Emerson Myers.

A post be-bop jazz pianist, Larry lists his major influences as Bill Evans, Wynton Kelly, and Miles Davis. After graduate school Larry toured with his trio “Spice of Life”, vocalist George Chapin, and other local bandleaders. In 1996 Larry joined James Bazen’s Music Unlimited Big Band. Having released three CDs of it’s own, that band enjoys a regular Tuesday night gig in the DC area.
