1975 Arista Debut! Jazz Fusion! Heavily Influenced by John Coltrane!

Larry Young started off in the early 60's as a Soul-Jazz organist, but by 1965 was so taken by John Coltrane's music that he recorded a modal Jazz album with Joe Henderson, Woddy Shaw and Elvin Jones: Unity (Blue Note) is regarded by many as the best Jazz organ recording.

Young became the B-3's most talented innovator and went on to play with Tony Williams and Miles Davis in the late 60's/early 70's. With Williams and John McLaughlin, he formed the Lifetime trio which helped forge the Fusion genre.

"If Jimmy Smith was 'the Charlie Parker of the organ,' Larry Young was its John Coltrane. One of the great innovators of the mid- to late '60s, Young fashioned a distinctive modal approach to the Hammond B-3 at a time when Smith's earthy, blues-drenched soul-jazz style was the instrument's dominant voice... [W]hen Young went to Blue Note in 1964, he was well on his way to becoming a major innovator. Coltrane's post-bop influence asserted itself more and more in Young's playing and composing, and his work grew much more cerebral and exploratory... Quick to embrace fusion, Young played with Miles Davis in 1969, John McLaughlin in 1970, and Tony Williams' groundbreaking Lifetime in the early '70s." - Alex Henderson,
