LARRY FULLER BIO:
Based in New York City, Larry Fuller is a premier mainstream jazz pianist, band leader, and collaborator with the giants of jazz. He is known by critics to "swing like a beast!” and began his professional musical career at the extraordinary age 13.
Fuller’s undeniable talent earned him the position of musical director and pianist for GRAMMY-nominated vocalist Ernestine Anderson, pianist for renowned drummer Jeff Hamilton’s Trio and legendary Ray Brown’s Trio. He also toured and recorded with guitar-vocal great John Pizzarelli.
Since 2013 - harnessing his unique bandstand experience with several very different jazz legends - Fuller has led the Larry Fuller Trio, performing prestigious venues and festivals internationally. He presents a musical program rarely experienced live today, consistently recognized for his emotive, super-swinging style, monster technique, and program versatility.
Larry Fuller has appeared at some of the most iconic global music venues: Carnegie Hall with the New York Pops, Symphony Hall with the Boston Pops, Hollywood Bowl, Kennedy Center, Bern International Jazz Festival, TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival, Shanghai Center Theater, Musical Instrument Museum (MIM) Music Theater, Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley Seattle, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Blue Note (Milan, Tokyo and New York City), A-Train (Berlin), Tbilisi Event Hall, Porgy & Bess (Vienna), Duc des Lombards (Paris), Auditorio Ibirapuera with Arte Viva Symphony Orchestra Brazil, and so many more!
“In his amazing gossamer piano solos, he sprinkles stardust on whatever song he plays, you hold your breath in wonder.”
~ THE NEW YORK TIMES
“Fuller’s polished technique stems from two of his main influences, Oscar Peterson and Phineas Newborn, Jr., to which is added the blues acumen of a Gene Harris and the swinging drive of a Monty Alexander.”
"He brings vitality. He swings hard and I like that!"
~ RAY BROWN, BASS LEGEND
