lawrence barris jazz guitarist
Clarence Baker, Baker's Keyboard Lounge:
"...a young musician with the technique and sound
that many veterans twice his age never achieve."
Darryl Dybka, Jazz Pianist & Grammy award winning
producer... "When I hear Larry play I hear finesse,
power, and a wonderful command of rhythm."
Earl Klugh, Guitarist:
"...one of the freshest guitar sounds today. I look for Larry
to be around for a long time to come."
"With an impeccable ear an obvious mastery of the guitar, Lawrence Barris
has put together a set of delicately written and performed originals.
Barris' display of technical clout is a swift vehicle for his expressive soloing...
...Overall, Barris' self-titled full length has every element that musicians with twice
the catalogue strive for, and this debut is as promising as it could be."
