In his early 20s, Larry Fullers undeniable talent earned him the position of musical director and pianist for Grammy-nominated vocalist Ernestine Anderson. He then joined renowned drummer Jeff Hamiltons Trio before gaining the honor of manning the keys as the legendary Ray Brown Trios final pianist. Of Fuller, Ray Brown said: He brings vitality! He swings hard and I like that. Fuller also performed for several years with guitar-vocal great John Pizzarelli. Today, Larry Fuller leads his own trio, receiving consistent praise for his hard-swinging, versatile, exciting performances. "In his amazing gossamer piano solos he sprinkles stardust on whatever song he plays, you hold your breath in wonder." ~ The New York TimesFullers polished technique stems from two of his main influences, Oscar Peterson and Phineas Newborn, Jr., to which is added the blues acumen of a Gene Harris and the swinging drive of a Monty Alexander. ~ JazzTimes
