Cory Weeds and The Cellar Jazz Society proudly present the LARRY FULLER TRIO. Larry Fuller is a world-class pianist firmly rooted in the hard swinging traditions of straight ahead jazz. Fuller’s piano style is dynamic and vital. When playing melodies, soloing, and accompanying band mates, Fuller conveys a momentum that engages listeners. It’s a sound he developed during long stints as a sideman with a number of jazz greats. His first major gig was serving as pianist and musical director for the wonderful vocalist Ernestine Anderson. Then he joined drummer Jeff Hamilton’s exuberant trio. Fuller went on to play with a jazz legend: bassist Ray Brown. He was the last pianist in the Ray Brown trio before Brown passed away in 2002. Next was an eight-year engagement as a member of the superb John Pizzarelli Quartet, which toured the world extensively. Fuller is now focusing on being a leader and continues to travel around the world, playing clubs and festivals. Joining him for this concert will be Russ Botten, a veteran Vancouver bassist who toured with Fuller’s first prominent bandleader, Ernestine Anderson. Botten has also performed with Diana Krall, Herb Ellis, Clark Terry, and many others. Joe Poole is one of Vancouver’s finest drummers, who has also toured with Anderson, and played with Houston Person, Curtis Fuller, and Red Holloway, among others. The show will be in the unique setting of the Blue Frog Studios concert theatre, in the heart of scenic White Rock.
