Larry Coryell has recorded four albums with Wide Hive Records. His most recent 'Heavy Feel' is primarily a rock jazz trio record with Mike Hughes on drums and Matt Montgomery on bass. George Brooks joins for four songs on soprano saxophone.
Larry also delivers a stunning acoustic duet with George called ‘River Crossing’.
Throughout ‘Heavy Feel’ Larry's guitar playing is outstanding; genre crossing with ease between rock, blues, folk, and soul infused jazz. An American musical icon and guitar legend, Larry will always be remembered as an innovator, an incredibly adept player, and simply said a musical heavy-weight.

Larry Coryell deserves a special place in the history books for re-inventing jazz electric guitar playing in the 1960s. As a true eclectic, armed with a brilliant technique, he is comfortable in almost every style, covering almost every base from the most decibel-heavy, distortion-laden electric work to the most delicate, soothing, intricate lines on acoustic guitar.
Matthew Montgomery has performed or recorded with, abbreviated for brevity’s sake would include: Faye Carol, Calvin Keys, Donald “Duck” Bailey, Graham Connah, Hafez Modirzadeh, Eddie Gale, Mark Levine, Kevin Carnes and David Boyce (Professor Borris Karnaz and Black Edgar Kenyatta of Broun Fellinis), and Kat Ouano (Crown City Rockers).
Michael Hughes is an American drummer living in the San Francisco Bay Area.
He studied drumming at L.A. Music Academy with Joe Porcaro and Ralph
Humphrey and spent a decade performing in LA with artists such as Tal
Wilkenfeld, Frank Gambale, and Robben Ford. He is the drummer on "Heavy Feel" by Larry Coryell as well as Throttle Elevator Music's "Area J" and "Jagged Rocks" featuring Kamasi Washington.
