Review of Guitarist Larry Coryell - Still learning.

As with her piece "Dish: Dynamics of the Duo," Katie Ball presents another thoughtful and sound-rich portrait of a musician at the height of (his) powers, and the result is a fun, informative, and swingingly upbeat snapshot.

Larry Coryell's work has gone largely unrecognized outside of the music industry, but that doesn't mean he hasn't made his mark on the business as a whole. As Katie points out, Coryell's been at the forefront of a movement he helped create, and now, having achieved an inner peace, he sounds as content as ever.

Katie Ball has an instinctive feel for the lives of the musicians she spotlights, and her voice remains as mellifluous as ever.
