The Adam Larson Band
Adam Larson (saxophone) Henry Hey (piano) Matt Clohesy (bass) Jimmy Macbride (drums) Originally from Normal, IL, saxophonist-composer Adam Larson, endorsed artist for P. Mauriat saxophones and Vandoren reeds, mouthpieces and ligatures, began playing saxophone at the age of 11. As a high school student, Larson was a member of virtually every national program dedicated to showcasing excellence in young jazz talent including The Grammy Band, Next Generation Jazz Orchestra, Betty Carter Jazz Ahead, YoungArts Jazz Fellows, Telluride Student All-Stars, Jazz Band of America and many others. Described by critic Howard Reich of The Chicago-Tribune as "a player for whom the word 'prodigious' was coined", by Peter Hum of the Ottawa Citizen as "a saxophonist who brings Donny McCaslin and Mark Turner to mind", and by Nate Chinen of The New York Times as "the sort of jazz musician who gets flagged early on as a promising talent and then hustles to meet every requirement for success", Larson has garnered numerous awards that distinguish him as one of the most promising artists of his generation. Adam holds BM and MM degrees in Jazz Performance from The Manhattan School, where he graduated with honors as a Master's student as the recipient of the William H. Borden Award for Outstanding performance in Jazz in 2014.
