Larance Marable

Born:

Larance Marable was a West Coast jazz hard bop drummer born in Los Angeles, California, probably best known for his work with Charlie Haden in his Quartet West. However, Marable also had a strong career first as a bop musician in the 1950s working with the likes of Dexter Gordon and Charlie Parker, among others. In the 1960s he started to venture into the cool jazz idiom with musicians like Zoot Sims, George Shearing and Chet Baker, although he worked with Baker as early as 1956 on the album "Chet Baker Sings". Earlier in his career, he was known as Lawrence Marable. Larance was a relative of Mississippi riverboat bandleader Fate Marable.

Read "Sophisticated Ladies" reviewed by Chris May


Gorgeous, poised and inviting. And that's just the sister on the cover of bassist Charlie Haden's latest with-singers-and-strings album. It's a retro design which, like the disc it packages, was inspired by Capitol Records' distinctive jazz-inflected vocal albums of the early 1960s. Your parents got off on this stuff big time back in the day, while ...
