Description

NOTE: THIS IS A RESERVATION. Eventbrite allows you to make a "free reservation" to ensure that you get a seat and we do not over-fill the room. ADMISSION IS TAKEN AT THE DOOR. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you!

Larry Vuckovich returns to Maybeck once again and will do a program of surprises –selections that are seldom heard, including the ones he hasn’t played in a while. As always, it’ll be a diverse/wide ranging program of rare standards, classic jazz, bebop, Latin/Brazilian, world music including Balkan Ethnic selections, funky/boogaloo, jazz tango, etc.


He came to San Francisco in 1951 as a teenager from Montenegro – former Yugoslavia. He was fortunate to experience the heyday of jazz of which the ‘50s decade had some of the richest and most diverse developments happening. He heard such great big bands as Harry James, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Woody Herman as well as small groups as Miles Davis, MJQ, Bill Evans, Red Garland, Sonny Rollins, just to name a few. He brings to the solo piano format all the impressions he absorbed from that period and more which developed later throughout his performances with the masters Mel Tormé, Jon Hendricks, Dexter Gordon, Philly Joe Jones, Bobby Hutcherson, Charlie Haden, Charles McPherson, Tom Harrell & more. He was fortunate to study classical piano at SF State with the noted Russian classical master pianist Vladimir Brenner.


Larry Vuckovich is recognized for his piano touch where he incorporates some European classical themes fused with jazz. Larry is also recognized as a pioneer in the U.S. for combining the Balkan Folk influences with Jazz which is found on his landmark recording “Blue Balkan” featuring Bobby Hutcherson. We hope you will join us for a unique solo piano presentation.
