Tell us a little about your background...
Born into a deeply rooted musical family, Larry Brown Jr., started plucking his father's guitar strings at the age of five. Brown hails from the small town of Venice, IL., east of downtown St. Louis which has been the home of great blues legends such as Shirley Brown and Albert King. It is family church in Venice where we listened and began to play for the church choir. After high school Larry attended Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE) to study with legendary 7-string guitarist Rick Haydon, trombonist Brett Stamps, bassist Tom Kennedy and pianist Reggie Thomas. As an undergraduate, Larry was educated on the essential elements of jazz through numerous clinics presented by some of the elite names in jazz. Larry has had the opportunity to learn from jazz legends such as Pat Martino, Houston Person, Jimmy Cobb, Victor Goines, Bucky and John Pizzarelli, Bill Stewart, John Scofield and Russell Malone to name a few. Brown has also been able to work with legends in jazz such as Curtis Fuller, Lou Soloff and Hamiet Bluiett. Larry has performed around the country and in many of the great venues in his native city St. Louis at venues such as the Sheldon Concert Hall, Finale and the Edward Jones Dome; as well as performed across the country in jazz clubs like Dizzys and jazz festivals like the Clark Terry Jazz Festival and The JVC Jazz Festival. This March, Larry will be participating in the Betty Carter Jazz Ahead residency. Larry is now attending graduate school at Northern Illinois University where he looks to become a performer and educator under tutorage of Fareed Haque, Willie Pickens and Ron Carter.
