In the 70's Schneider received much public acclaim for his efforts with the Charles Mingus and Horace Silver bands. While he has been active ever since, his development as an artist has only been well documented on SteepleChase and this CD marks Larry Schneider's 8 th effort as a leader for producer Nils Winther.
" Devoid of any of the inherent sappiness that is common to the lightweight tones of those adult contemporary-type players, Schneider's soprano work is marked by a mild vibrato and dark timbre that is more akin to Steve Lacy's approach " Chris Hovan – allaboutjazz.com
– in reference to a previous Schneider release on SteepleChase ("Ali Girl" SCCD 31429).
