Larry Corban is a New York City-based jazz guitarist and composer with 5

CDs out as a bandleader. His rhythm section of choice is the Aperturistic

Trio (pianist James Weidman, bassist Harvie S, drummer Steve Williams).

Alto saxophonist, Steve Slagle, guested for 3 cuts on his fourth cd,

“Corban Nation.” Corban Nation was on Jazzweek: 20 weeks on the Top

100, peaking at #18 overall; CMJ Jazz Chart: 7 weeks on Top 40, peaking

at #4 overall, and RMR Jazz Chart: 19 weeks on Top 50, peaking at #1

overall. His most recent and fifth cd, “Emergence,” is as of August 19, on

NACC for 12 weeks peaking at #2, #26 on RMR, and has debuted at #39

on JazzWeek. On his fifth recording as a leader and third with the

Aperturistic Trio, Larry Corban wields his burgundy Gibson L-5 with a

blend of unabashed swing on uptempo burners and tender lyricism on

relaxed ballads. This time out the core quartet is augmented by tenor sax

titan, Jerry Bergonzi, who elevates the proceedings with ferocious blowing

on four tunes. The music is on the cusp of straight-ahead jazz in the

present moment with an intentional nod towards the mid 60’s Blue Note

era.

”Displaying complete mastery of his instrument in the grand manner of a

virtuoso, the guitarist gives notice that he is an artist of the first order. His

playing is gorgeous; deeply penetrating as well as feather-light. There is

never a temptation to ornament for ornaments’ sake; every run and every

dazzling arpeggio is dedicated to embellishing the music towards

completing its harmonic concepts. Mr Corban also has perfect time and

best of all his fingers melt on the strings creating the kind of rolling, flowing

molten style that has come to be his exquisite calling card.”

“Corban is, without a doubt, one of today’s finest fretters. A Gibson man,

he tells the world what an L-5 is capable of with fluent clear solos, drawing

on past Gibsonians such as Barney Kessel and Johnny Smith”

  Here’s what reviewers are saying about Larry:

Blistering Lines, energetic rhythms and melodically pleasing melodies. http://larrycorban.com/e-music-2/

bop verging upon fusion but without the distortion, power chords, and usual outside paraphernalia……..In fact, one of the more surprising aspects of this CD is that the guy is ceaselessly splitting down the mathematics and possibilities of what he’s writing. It’s a fascinating process and quickly becomes apparent he’s improvising on multiple levels………this guy exceeds expectations………slotting him with Metheny and McLaughlin (and even George Benson, whose old stuff to this day knocks me out) is perfect. Several worlds meet in his work and spawn a fourth: Corban’s ownhttp://larrycorban.com/fame-review/

Larry Corban has a very different voice as a Jazz Guitarist. His single note lines are fluid and his chord solos very punchy and percussive. Fans of the more outside and modern players should give him a listen.

Corban is a no-nonsense player who can manage blistering chops without losing an in-the-pocket relaxed feel.

Corban described the energy on his latest release as capturing lighting in a bottle. I’d say I have to agree with that assessment. Corban’s chops on guitar are sometimes very melodic and, quite frankly, more often peppered with a sharp edge. Joined by both electric and strand up bass, piano, Hammond B-3, Fender Rhodes, drums and saxophone, “Corban Nation” is partly traditional jazz, and part get-em-goin’ high octane. Of course he can be soft and mellow as well, as superbly demonstrated on the fourth track, “Child’s Tune.” If there is some tangible link between what is typically considered traditional jazz and something more cutting edge, this release is probably it – and is one I really enjoyed.
