Larry Tamanini

Jazz guitarist Larry Tamanini has been a stalwart of the Philadelphia Jazz scene since the late 1990s. In that time Larry has developed an unique tone and voice on the guitar that has made him one of the most respected and sought after guitarists in the area.

Larry was born into a family that loved and valued great music and it was this support system at home that encouraged him to pick up the guitar and follow his own love of music.

MUSICIAN Born:

Robert Dunn

I was born into the sort of family that made me want to stay by myself in my room practicing guitar & writing songs. Somehow I developed this mindset where I felt drawn to the surreal/abstract so I gravitated to music that that was that way (psychedelic, Hendrix, Doors, Beatles, etc.) I began studying jazz and as I progressed through bebop, hard bop, modal and into the 'avant garde' or free jazz I began to absorb these genres and developed my own musical approach. I did put together musical units mostly in LA, and where I currently reside - the San Francisco Bay Area that did attract some attention and this is what I am continuing to do to this day.
