Having released two albums this year while performing diligently across the world, Adam Larson is clearly demonstrating that he is, in the words of Nate Chinen writing for The New York Times, “a self-assured young saxophonist.” A veteran of our stage, Larson has been pursuing a Master’s degree at the Manhattan School of Music while maintaining a busy schedule performing, recording, and traveling alongside both his quintet in addition to playing with a slew of other groups.
In September, Larson released his sophomore effort, Overdue Ovation. This album includes six new compositions from Larson, one by co-producer and frequent collaborator Nils Weinhold, and a standard, Irving Berlin’s “Remember.” The title for the album is a tribute to Larson’s parents; he comments, “They are such a huge part of my musical upbringing, and I wouldn’t be where I am today without them.” We look forward to having Adam back this week as he continues to develop his artistry on our stage.
