Larry Coryell (1943-2017)

Very sad to hear my dear friend Larry Coryell passed away in NYC on Sunday 19th February.

Larry and I worked together many times over the years. First in 1980 when we both toured America together with Stephane Grappelli.

We later toured together in India and Europe and last played a guitar festival in Germany just 11 months ago.

Known as the ‘Godfather of Fusion’ Larry was equally at home playing straight ahead jazz, Flamenco, or writing orchestral scores.

He was a unique musician and human being that will be missed greatly by all that knew him and his music.
