O’s Notes: Larry is one of the most electrifying jazz blues guitarists ever yet he never achieved the commercial success of some of his peers. This CD was put together mirroring a concert DVD capturing some of his best songs. The supporting musicians are Bernard Purdie (d), John Hart (b) and Winston Byrd (t). They play eight selections starting with “The Opening” a fitting declaration moving through the churning passion of “Slow Blues” and “Half A Heart”, both featuring guest David Hildaigo also on guitar. They close with one of Larry’s more jazzy tunes “The Dragon Gate” capping a rousing set. It underscores Coryell’s place on the podium with great guitarists.
