Larry Fuller Trio

Thursday, Oct. 11, The Sapphire Room

by

When it comes to jazz piano, New York-based Larry Fuller is one of the best in the business. In 2010, a New York Times article gushed that he "sprinkles stardust on whatever song he plays," and although that might be a bit of an exaggeration, the sentiment holds. Fuller started tickling the keys at age 13, and in the 40 years that followed he played around the world alongside notables like Ernestine Anderson, Ray Brown, Jeff Hamilton and John Pizzarelli. Now, he leads his own trio, and on Thursday, Oct. 11, it will appear at the Riverside Hotel Sapphire Room for an Idaho Jazz Education Endowment-sponsored concert. Fuller is known as much for his emotionally charged, swinging delivery as for his technically meticulous playing—so if you make it to the Sapphire on Thursday, prepare to be swept up in song.
