Larry Fuller Trio at DazzleJazz
Based in New York City, Larry Fuller is one of the premier mainstream jazz pianists living today. From bop to stride to swing, he is known by critics to "swing like a beast”.
Fuller began his professional musical career at the extraordinary age of 13 in his hometown of Toledo, Ohio and the Midwest region. In his early 20’s, Fuller’s undeniable talent earned him the position of musical director and pianist for Grammy-nominated vocalist Ernestine Anderson. He then joined renowned drummer Jeff Hamilton’s Trio before gaining the honor of manning the keys as the legendary Ray Brown Trio’s final pianist. Of Fuller, Ray Brown said: “He brings vitality! He swings hard and I like that”. Fuller also performed for several years with guitar-vocal great John Pizzarelli.
Today, Larry Fuller leads his own trio, leveraging his inimitable experience with the giants of jazz. His performances are consistently praised for their excitement, versatility and emotion. Stephen Holden of The New York Times described Fuller's live performance: "In his amazing gossamer piano solos he sprinkles stardust on whatever song he plays, you hold your breath in wonder".
