Larry Coryell – Planet End (Full Album)

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Planet End is an album by jazz guitarist Larry Coryell that was released in 1975 by Vanguard Records. It was the final recording for Vanguard and reached number 39 on the 1976 Jazz Albums chart. The album consists of tracks recorded at the Spaces and Introducing the Eleventh House sessions.

During 1968-75, guitarist Larry Coryell recorded a wide variety of interesting material for Vanguard. This album, a CD reissue of the original Lp, was Coryell’s final one for the label. The five selections, although originals, have the feel of a jam session. Coryell’s Eleventh House (which includes trumpeter Mike Lawrence, keyboardist Mike Mandel, bassist Danny Trifan and drummer Alphonse Mouzon) is featured on two tracks (their final recordings), Coryell plays all of the instruments on the brief “The Eyes Of Love” and on two lengthy jams he is matched with fellow guitarist John McLaughlin, bassist Miroslav Vitous, drummer Billy Cobham and (on Larry Young’s “Tyrone”) keyboardist Chick Corea. The lively music is very much of the period and this CD is a bit brief (at 34 minutes) but the high-quality of the solos makes this one worth picking up by listeners interested in Larry Coryell’s early period (ScottYanow/AllMusic,
