a nice sunday afternoon concert...
the trio was Larry Coryell on guitar, Mark Eagan on bass and Thierry Arpino on drums
they opened with a couple electric numbers...then brought his son Murali up to play and sing "goodbye pork pie hat"...very expresive
and then an acoustic song written by larry for his fiance...and a few more from the trio...then set break
back with another acoustic song by larry dedicated to his fiance...i think it was gershin...quite a number!
another couple from the trio...featuring eagan playing his st. patrick green bass with gold trim flawlessly...and arpino, son of some note worthy french composer/performer putting on quite a show...they performed a song written by each of them
then Murali and larry's fiance joined the stage to do tracy chapman's "give me one reason to stay here"...sung by larry's fiance whose name also happens to be tracy
closing up with al green's "love and happiness"
see murali coryell if you get the chance...he's playing a lot of small clubs in the next few months...he's got a great energy about him...good blues, soul and jazz
Thx for the review.
I used to be into Larry Coryell back in my 1970s "jazz phase" -- haven't thought about him for many years now. Good to hear he's still got it.
Sounds like they're doing fewer instrumentals these days, and more songs with lyrics.
Does his son Murali also play guitar?
yes...plays guitar very well...blues, soul and jazz
this was sort of a special hometown family show...so not really like a straight larry show...i think larry was kicking off his son's tour...the larry trio is likely to do a longer show and stick more to the jazz instumentals as you would expect
