He then went on to play in drummer Jeff Hamilton’s Trio, bassist Ray Brown’s Trio, and John Pizzarelli’s Quartet. Today, Fuller leads The Larry Fuller Trio.

Tags

"Fuller's polished technique stems from two of his main influences, Oscar Peterson and Phineas Newborn, Jr., to which is added the blues acumen of a Gene Harris and the swinging drive of a Monty Alexander." — JazzTimes

"A word about Mr Fuller: In his amazing gossamer piano solos, he sprinkles stardust on whatever song he plays; you hold your breath in wonder." — New York Times

"Larry Fuller merits special attention. If you closed your eyes and concentrated on piano solos that flowed as lightly and sweetly as a mountain brook, you could swear he was channeling the musical spirit of one of Billie Holiday's greatest accompanists, Teddy Wilson." — New York Times
