Larry Young article by David Grundy

1 post in this topic

My friend David Grundy in the UK is writing an article on Larry Young for publication in the online journal Point of Departure, for which he had previously written about Alan Shorter (see below).

Any information, would be appreciated, especially about gigs, particularly those from the later 60s and into the 70s, outside of the Tony Williams LIfetime and Santana/McLaughlin gigs which are extensively documented. Some gigs he already has information about include:

1) Larry with Dewey Redman and Rashied Ali at Slugs' in 1968

2) Larry with Byard Lancaster and Eric Gravatt

3) Larry with Billy Brooks and Leo Wright

4) Sidemen gigs with Houston Person, Jimmy Ponder and Lionel Hampton (as pianist)

5) A large group under his own name called 'Continuous Prayer' around the time of Lawrence of Newark (1973/1974)

Anything about his later career would be most appreciated (especially those of you who may have seen him live), as well as any leads on tracking down his album 'The Magician'.
