Piano legend Larry Willis leads his all-star quintet, the Heavy Blue Band. Willis has recorded over 300 albums working with people like Dizzy Gillespie, Lee Morgan, Cannonball Adderley, Stan Getz, and Art Blakey. He was also the pianist for Blood, Sweat and Tears for 7 years and, as a student, performed under the direction of Leonard Bernstein. All About Jazzsays his styles “mixes modalism and a rough-hewn impressionism.” JazzTimes adds, “His single-note scatters are deft and impeccably thought-out.”
