San Francisco's Home for Great Concerts since 1970

Larry Karush

For composer/pianist Larry Karush, improvisation is integral to the genesis and performance of the music he creates out of his roots in Jazz, Indian, Afro-Caribbean, western classical and 20th century music. This concert of his “comprovisations” will include his recent works, as well as unstandard treatments of jazz standards, and a little boogie-woogie. Featured on the program will be The Salsa Way (awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2000), and the Bay Area premiere of his Song for the New City lV: My People, the creation of which was supported by the Ucross Artist-in-Residency Prize awarded in 2008 to Mr. Karush by the Herb Alpert Foundation.
