Nonetheless, you would certainly be surprised to learn that he lived to be just 38 years old, passing away in 1978.

These sparkling sessions, the ORTF Recordings, are drawn from the fruitful mid-1960s period. Larry Young was a contemporary of Jimmy Smith, who is indisputably better known in terms of jazz organ legacy. However, Zev Feldman the producer of this attractive new two-CD package, Larry Young in Paris, has no doubts about who made the greater impact in the long term. Jimmy Smith was a pioneer who took the Hammond organ out of the church, but Larry Young took the organ out of this world, declares Feldman of the musician who died at the age of 38 in 1978
This project came about in 2012 when producer Zev Feldman traveled to France to investigate what was in the ORTF archives and discovered several recordings of the great Larry Young that had been sitting in their vault for nearly 50 years, since the mid '60's. IN PARIS tells the story, through words and music, of Larry Young as an American jazz artist living in Paris. Featured artists include Woody Shaw on trumpet, Nathan Davis on saxophone, Billy Brooks on drums & numerous French artists such as pianist Jack Dieval, saxophonist Jean-Claude Fohrenback and drummer Franco Manzecchi.

As a listening experience, The ORTF Recordings are a revelation, showcasing the innovative Young (who died tragically in 1978 at age 38) and his group of equally youthful and talented musicians, including 19-year-old Newark trumpeter Woody Shaw. Released here for the first time, 2016's Larry Young in Paris: The ORTF Recordings is something of a lost treasure rediscovered. Recorded while the Newark, New Jersey-born pianist/organist Larry Young was living in France from 1964-1965, these recordings were broadcast once on French public radio and then archived for decades. Notably, these sessions prefigure Young's landmark 1965 Blue Note album, Unity, which also featured Shaw.
Larry Young In Paris The ORTF Recordings. If you’re not familiar with Young’s playing but have heard a Nice album or an ELP album or heard the late Keith Emerson play anything, you’ve sort of heard Larry Young. The styling similarities are unmistakable. Of course Young came first but the lower register percolating, bubbling, driving sound lives on.
