Forty years ago, a band called Eleventh House helped set the standard for what would become known as Jazz-Rock Fusion. The band consisted of Larry Coryell (guitar), Alphonse Mouzon (drums), Mike Mandel (keyboards), Danny Trifan (bass) and Randy Brecker (trumpet).
On this leg of the Eleventh House Reunion Tour, Mandel couldn’t make the gig so Larry brought in one of Seattle’s finest pianists, Marc Seales, to fill in.
As you’ll hear in this performance, Marc more than holds his own.
Hosted by Abe Beeson, the session consisted of three great songs by the band and some wonderful anecdotes from Larry Coryell about his youth as a Seattle rock ‘n roll guitarist and the formation of Eleventh House in the 1970’s.
