"Benefit for Charlie Coryell"
with Larry Coryell & Gil Parris and Special Guest: Murali Coryell
The Legendary Larry Coryell, jazz guitar innovator & pioneer of jazz - rock fusion comes together with Grammy nominated rock, blues, jazz guitar virtuoso Gil Parris for an incredible evening of music in a benefit concert to supplement the costs of extensive testing and healthcare for Charlie Coryell, the son of Murali Coryell; grandson of Larry Coryell.
As one of the pioneers of jazz-rock , Larry Coryell brought an alien sensibility to jazz guitar in the 1960s; a phrasing and note-bending that owed as much to blues, rock and country as it did to bop. Coryell has graced the stages of other legends like Hendrix, Santana, and Clapton.
