Trumpeter Larry Hall was a student of Mr. William Adam at Indiana University before starting a professional career that has spanned just about every style of music imaginable.

Larry’s early years were spent playing in Hawaii and Las Vegas before finally settling down in Los Angeles. During these years, Larry performed with many show bands and was a founding member of the band OX, which later became Seawind. Larry spent some time on the road with Buddy Rich and can be heard on the “Roar of ’74” album.

Since moving to L.A., Larry is one of the most sought after session trumpet players. His credits include many movies and television soundtracks. He has recorded on albums for artists like Elton John, The Jacksons, Earth, Wind & Fire, Placido Domingo, and many others.

Larry is equally at home in a brass chamber group as he is in the studio or in a big band. You can often here him playing in a brass quintet around town.

    John, I’ve been listening to your podcasts, late to the game. I’m very entertained and impressed by the professional quality of these. I know that young musicians are getting a lot of valuable information not available elsewhere.

  • Hi Robb! Thank you so much for listening and for your kind words. That means a lot to me coming from such a master craftsman and fan of the brass world.

  • Thank you so much for sharing.

  • Rohan

    Hey, just want to say thanks so much for the podcast. Its great to hear the stories and the trials and tribulations of such great musicians. You do a great job interviewing John and seem to ask the right questions at the right time and really make the conversation flow. The Doc interview was one of my fav’s. I had no idea what a great guy he was. Thanks again.
