Larry Coryell will be performing Wednesday night in a solo act at 7pm. Coryell has made quite a name for himself in the jazz world. He says he is just happy to have the opportunity to perform here.
Coryell has not been in the Tri-Cities, where he grew up, since 1961. He also graduated from Richland High School.
Coryell says, "I just want people to know I'm from the Northwest. I've gone to school there, the school system is great. The upbringing I had was real good."
You can also catch Coryell with bassist Chuck Deardorf and drummer Milo Petersen tomorrow at 7, again at the Batelle Auditorium.
