About this Artist
Larry Goldings is considered by many to be one of today's premier jazz organists, pianists, and composers. He possesses both a respect for tradition and an insatiable desire for exploration that puts him in a class by himself. Goldings' playing is lyrical, soulful, and sophisticated. His musical language, while accented by the blues, is also influenced by his deep understanding of harmony, his love for American popular song and contemporary classical music, and his compositional instincts. Larry has toured and recorded with James Taylor, John Scofield, Jim Hall, Pat Metheny, Maceo Parker, and Michael Brecker. Today, as well as playing a set of organ trio jazz, Goldings will demonstrate the harmonium, melodica, pump organ, and electric chord organ; Anthony Wilson is featured on guitar and Kevin Kanner on drums.
