It's a night of great jazz and great tone!! My guest is Larry Koonse. Having studied with legend Jimmy Wyble, Larry was the first recipient of a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Studies at USC. He has toured with such greats as Mel Torme, Natalie Cole and many more. As a session guitarist, Larry has played on albums with Rod Stewart, Linda Ronstadt, Peter Erskine, Cleo Laine, Al Hirt among many others. Larry has written a guitar curriculum for the Player's School, founded by bassist Jeff Berlin. He was a co-leader of the L.A. Jazz Quartet and member of Billy Child's landmark Jazz/Chamber sextet and has released numerous CDs working with some of the best jazz musicians in the business. He is currently a faculty member at the California Institute of the Arts. We talk to Larry about his amazing career, his music and, of course, his guitars!
