, is simply a beautiful player in every sense of the word. No matter what the nature of the performance, the musical style, the tune, or type of recording session (and he’s appeared on hundreds of CDs), he can always be counted on to swing tastefully, inventively, creatively and with feeling. His contributions to Jazz Education have been significant as well. He’s taught at University of the Arts, Temple University School of Music, West Chester University, Widener University, Community College of Philadelphia and privately. Many of his students have pursued successful careers in music, and they are the first ones to proudly tell you I studied with Larry.

Jazz Bridge is a Philadelphia-based non-profit organization dedicated to assisting area jazz and blues musicians in need. Their Jazz Bridge in Old City program is one in a series at this venue, in addition to four other area locales.
