Every Friday on this blog will be “Makin’ it Happen Friday”, where I feature another musician who’s found a way to make a living playing music. I am constantly inspired by others, and hope to pass that inspiration on to you.

The first installment features pianist Larry Fuller. Larry lived here in Seattle for a number of years and we were fortunate to be able to head down to the local jazz club to see him play regularly. He has played with many of the greats of jazz music, including Ray Brown, Ernestine Anderson, John Pizzarelli, Clark Terry and Benny Golson.

The New York Times recently ran a profile of Larry that gives you a peek into his life in music, and how he has been able to make a great living doing what he loves to do. Read the full article here.

Go search out some of Larry’s recordings, both as a sideman and his album as a leader, “Easy Walker” with the great Brown on bass and Jeff Hamilton on drums.


If you’d like to be featured in a future “Makin’ it Happen Friday” send me an email.

Hey Jason, this is Jason, I like what you’re doing with this blog, I definitely subscribed to you and look forward to you amassing a huge readership! I just started a similar blog, I’m a trumpet player and entrepreneur/author in Dallas, TX and have been “making it happen” for 10 years since graduating U of North Texas. Best of luck!
