Larry Chinn Trio
Jazz, Standards, Swing, Big Band, Piano Trio, Instumental
I have over 2 decades of experience playing solo, leading a piano duo/trio and accompanying singers and horn players in both duo or small ensembles. I've had the good fortune to have extended tenures working with Margie Baker and Jules Broussard. I have also worked on the bandstand with John Handy, Pharoah Saunders, Mark Murphy, Harvie Schwartz and Richie Cole. I've performed in locales ranging from neighborhood pubs, to luxury hotels and this area's premier jazz venues like Yoshi's, Pearl's, and the Monterey Jazz Festival.
I have professional stage equipment with digital keyboard, microphones, amplification and am available for work ranging from receptions to nightclubs. I can perform as a solo pianist or put together ensembles with vocals, horn players and rhythm instruments. I studied briefly at the Berklee College of Music, Pomona College with Bobby Bradford, San Francisco State University and with Mark Levine. I took extensive lessons with Don Hass, Dick Hindman, Peter Horvath and Charlie Shoemake.
