Welcome to Larry Gray Music/June 2016. We finished out another great year at University of Illinois, working with so many inspired and gifted students, and at the same time I am focusing my energies on various performance projects, lots of practicing, and upcoming gigs with jazz legends like Benny Golson, Gary Bartz, Ira Sullivan, Steve Turre, Sonny Fortune, Larry Coryell among others. The on-going project Gray Wilkerson Ra is still growing along with continued collaborations with John Moulder and a new release from the award winning improvisational trio Wertico Cain and Gray, with a CD release party as Space Evanston in August. and a performance in Champaign in the fall. I also was able to record a very special solo bass concert this past February in Smith Hall in Urbana and I anticipate releasing the video in the fall.
