Few jazz guitarists recorded more or in a greater variety of styles than Larry Coryell, who passed away in February at the age of 73.
Not counting live albums or compilations, he released over 60 albums, most under his own name, and quite a few co-billed with duet partners or in collaboration with larger ensembles. He explored so many jazz-based genres that categorizing him posed a risk not unlike that faced by the proverbial blind men feeling the elephant.
