Larry Fuller

Larry Fuller is a world-class pianist rooted in the hard-swinging tradition of mainstream jazz.

Raised in Toledo, Ohio, Larry Fuller began his musical studies at age 11, immediately showing a talent for jazz. At 13, Floyd “Candy” Johnson, a veteran of the Count Basie and Duke Ellington Orchestras, took Fuller under his wing, hiring him for regular paying gig. In his early years, Fuller became a regular on the Midwest jazz circuit, performing frequently in Detroit and Ann Arbor.

From 1988-1993, Fuller worked with vocal great Ernestine Anderson and moved to Seattle as her pianist and musical director. He performed and recorded with Anderson including on her Grammy-nominated CD, Now and Then.

”A word about Mr Fuller: In his amazing gossamer piano solos, he sprinkles stardust on whatever song he plays; you hold your breath in wonder.” — New York Times, 2010

”Larry Fuller merits special attention. If you closed your eyes and concentrated on piano solos that flowed as lightly and sweetly as a mountain brook, you could swear he was channeling the musical spirit of one of Billie Holiday's greatest accompanists, Teddy Wilson.” — New York Times, 2009

”Mr Fuller generates his own incandescence with riveting solos that summarize the history of jazz piano.” — Post-Gazette, January 2013
