Time to Play
Larry's debut 'Jazz' CD featuring the great Ira Sullivan. 'Being on the stand with Ira Sullivan is the greatest learning experience I can recall. He would actually compose and arrange during the set. I mean he would get an idea and just 'go with it' you know? Besides being a phenom on all his different axes his real creativity would come out on the stand where he would morph a regular set of tunes into a big 'piece' utilizing strengths from those around him. Ira could always bring out the best in each player.' He should be an actual class in music schools- Sign up for Ira 101- first work out your notes and get command of your axe, then play a set with Ira and see how it's all done.' Oh- this record's real good too. 'Life can be a real 'E ticket' ride at times and this record depicts some of the joy I was experiencing at the time- as well as the turbulency and turmoil life can also offer.'
