Larry Goldings
Born and raised in the Boston area, Larry started playing the piano by ear at the age of nine. By the age of 12, he had developed a love for jazz and sought out private instruction. In 1986, Larry left his Boston home to enroll in an innovative pilot jazz program at the New School for Social Research in New York City. It was there he began his professional career, being asked to tour and record with jazz singing legend, Jon Hendricks. Among his other teachers was guitarist Jim Hall, who, impressed with Larry's piano playing, asked him to join his band.
 
In 1988, Larry happened upon a regular gig at a pianoless bar. This became Larry's training ground as an organist. His own trio with Peter Bernstein and Bill Stewart got its auspicious start there.
 
After college, Larry began exploring another of his pasisons: funk music, with Maceo Parker. Worldwide exposure with Maceo brought Larry a record deal and the start of a solo career with a 1991 release for Verve Records (The Intimacy of the Blues). 1993, John Scofield hired Larry to play in his band.
 
Larry made several recordings with his trio, and on many albums, he plays as sideman with such artists as Jim Hall, Maceo Parker, Michael Brecker, James Moody and Carla Bley. In summer 2000, Larry toured Europe with the all-star band of Michael Brecker, Pat Metheny, and Bill Stewart.
