Larry McKenna

One of the world’s finest jazz saxophone players, Larry McKenna is known for his gorgeous, velvety tenor saxophone sound, the unparalleled beauty of his balladry, and his fluid, bebop- inspired improvisations. His national reputation as both a masterful jazz improviser in the be- bop and modern jazz styles of the 1950s and 1960s and an influential jazz educator is firmly established after six decades in his profession. Larry’s status as a jazz great has also been affirmed by his myriad fans and the jazz stars with whom he has played and recorded including Woody Herman, Clark Terry, Buddy DeFranco, Tony Bennett, Rosemary Clooney and Frank Sinatra.
