Description

Guitarist Larry Coryell & The Eleventh House played a powerful live show on tour in Germany in 1975 that was recorded by German station Radio Bremen. It is now available for the first time in full length.

When in 1975 Larry Coryell went on tour with his short-lived all-star group The Eleventh House, the jazz-rock scene had just reached its climax. Although Larry is considered by many to be one of the first to melt jazz with rock, he is perhaps not seen to be one of jazz/rock's leading artists.

With this recording this might be about to change. Very few acts of that era were that powerful. Memorable melodies, funk grooves, blues rock guitar, 70s synth sounds, and a lot of fun and entertainment were the ingredients of a concert to be remembered. The material chosen was like a "Best of the Eleventh House". While many other fusion protagonists with a jazz background used rock, blues, and funk elements, thinking this might make their music more accessible (some slipping towards easy listening, others were just unable to create a rock feeling), Larry Coryell & the Eleventh House used all these styles in a well-balanced mix.

This is the first volume in Promising Music's Livelove series, which captures concerts recorded by German state-owned station Radio Bremen.

Personnel: Larry Coryell (guitar), Mike Lawrence (trumpet), Mike Mandel (keyboards), John Lee (bass), Alphonse Mouzon (drums)
