Larry Redhouse, born in Monterey, CA
on August 9, 1959, has been playing piano for over thirty
years. Not surprisingly, Larry comes from a family of
exceptional musicians (Larry is the youngest of three
brothers and two sisters) who were immersed in music
from early childhood. His father, of the Navajo Nation
and his mother who is Philipino, encouraged each of
the six siblings to develop their musical skills.
At an early age, Larry demonstrated
his talent and love for playing the piano and he cites
several influences. Inspired by the hippie movement
of the mid-sixties, and the music of bands such as the
Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, and Santana, Larry was motivated
to learn Latin percussion, drums and trumpet. He always
knew his forte was in jazz stylings, and he would incorporate
the combination of many influences, such as fusion,
traditional jazz, Latin and funk into his music. Larry's
original compositions continue to be affected by his
appreciation for these styles.
Larry is a fresh and original musical
voice and brings an honest message of deep, emotional
musical expression. He has never sought to be a "fad
musician". He hasn't wavered in his vision of improvising
and playing through life's song, with his heart.
Larry's sound has evolved into a modern
sound of mature, original jazz innovation, with an edge
of raw creative energy. He utilizes the timeless format
of the acoustic piano. Then, with a slight twist, from
his arsenal of alectronic keyboards, he adds colorfully
natural synth sounds, giving the compositions added
The Special Step - The first self produced
trio release showcasing many of Larry's original compositions.
Live at the Westward Look - Self produced
trio release recorded live emphasizing the new trio
sound of musical introspection and sensitivity.
Spirit Progression - An exciting new release of all original compositions from Larry. "...the whole CD has a fresher, hipper-than-fusion sound," writes music critic Chuck Graham.
Each track shines with tight ensemble work, solid compositions and tasteful improvisational interplay between some very gifted musicians.
"Collectively and individually, these very creative guys are the best" --- Paul Horn, world renowned jazz musician.
