Living Tribute

by Larry Newcomb Quartet

Newcomb’s compositions, covers, melodic lines and comping skills are strong and on the money--he’s in touch with every note he plays in his uniquely original style, in perfect synchronicity with Bucky Pizzarelli’s rhythm playing and the LN Quartet.

Album Notes

Bucky Pizarelli;
“Larry Newcomb’s improvisations are impressive. His single-note lines describe the chord changes brilliantly and completely.”

Gene Bertoncini:
“Larry’s melodic lines are strong and on the money! He’s in touch with every note he plays in his uniquely original style. In perfect synchronicity with Bucky Pizzarelli’s rhythm playing. Larry means every note he plays. I appreciate his dedication – a positive force.”

Larry Lucie:
“Larry Newcomb gets a great sound consistently and that isn't easy. He has terrific talent, and he has mastered the guitar."

Randy Johnston:
"Larry Newcomb is a fine musician with inspiration, dedication, and self-discipline. He draws from a well-developed set of guitarist's tools.”

Joe Vincent Tranchina:
“Larry Newcomb is a thoughtful guitarist; thoughtful in his tone production; thoughtful in his linear approach; thoughtful in his harmonic approach; thoughtful in his compositional approach; and thoughtful in his regard to ever increasing his knowledge and growth. Give a listen and hear.”

Andrew Deutsche writes:
"Larry's playing speaks to people in that very special place where music is best savored."

Jon Garelick, DOWNBEAT Magazine:
"In Larry Newcomb Quartet’s previous album, LIVE INTENTIONALLY: “Everyone involved makes the familiar sound brand new. That's especially true of the leader with this fluid attack and varied phrasing."

Ray Blue:
“Larry Newcomb is a very skilled, deeply passionate and insightful guitarist.”

Chris Harrison:
"At last a guitarist who dazzles with his subtlety -- not how many notes he can fit into a bar.”

Charming album
“Living Tribute” is the new release from gifted, expressive jazz guitarist and composer Larry Newcomb. He kicks things off on a more familiar note with “I Remember You” and “You’d be So Nice To Come Home To.” The lively set offers a lot of sweet variety, and Newcomb’s swinging own “Round Pond Reunion” offers much opportunity for some inspiring improvisation. Along with his band playing piano, bass and drums, Newcomb is joined on eight tracks by one of his teachers, Bucky Pizzarelli, on acoustic archtop guitar. While Newcomb’s contemporary compositions have currency, the band’s presentation also evokes a vintage, nostalgic flavor. For more rocking and bluesy southern flavor, Newcomb’s “Gold Top” builds from the head to harmony lines and improvisation that also features Eric Olsen’s piano. Leigh Jonaitas’ vocals are just the thing for a bouncy love song, “One Heart Ain’t As Great As Two,” followed by a Latin-flavored original “Love Is Here.” This charming album is a living tribute to those individuals who have positively impacted Newcomb with their musicianship, friendship and love.
