Larry Vuckovich has won acclaim from critics and jazz audiences for his deeply imaginative style and repertoire heard at prestigious North American and European jazz clubs, concert halls and festivals. He is as equally at home in world music/classically influenced modal jazz as he is in hard-swinging bebop, post-bop, contemporary jazz, and down-home blues. The New York Times notes that his unique outlook and collection of influences “set him apart from most pianists who are heard regularly in New York”. The Village Voice comments on his “book of piano gems that will keep you guessing”. The Toronto Globe and Mail calls him “a musician who sits apart from the rest by virtue…of his taste for both the exotic and the exquisite”.

Cited by piano legend Barry Harris as “one of the premier West Coast pianists”, Mr. Vuckovich brought his Jazz-Latin Trio/Quartet, featured on his two recent piano trio/quartet CDs, to Lincoln Center’s Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola in New York on a recent East Coast tour. On the same tour, Marian McPartland invited him to interview and perform with her on her Piano Jazz show, broadcast to national and global NPR affiliates. A versatile pianist and leader, Mr. Vuckovich’s performances have gone from soloist at the Fazioli piano series in San Francisco, New York and Chicago, to conducting an 18-piece band, which sold out the legendary 600-seat 2007 Jazz at Filoli show in Woodside, California.
