Over a musical and recording career spanning three decades, he has earned a reputation for his instrumental talent, his instantly recognizable sound, and the sensitivity, imagination, and creative curiosity that have consolidated as a requested sideman and valued collaborator.
Grenadier has collaborated for decades with pianist Brad Mehldau and guitarist Pat Metheny, as well as participating in recordings by important jazz musicians such as Paul Motian, Charles Lloyd, Enrico Rava, Danilo Perez , Chris Potter, Joshua Redman and Kurt Rosenwinkel. He also highlights the Fly trio in his discography, along with saxophonist Mark Turner and drummer Jeff Ballard.
The Liceu Jazz – Masterclasses & Concerts concert series is part of the close collaboration that the Fundació Conservatori Liceu has maintained for 11 years with the Voll-Damm Barcelona Jazz Festival, with the patronage of the Ferrer-Salat Music Foundation.
Masterclasses such as that of Larry Grenadier are one of the most important bets of the Liceu Conservatory, which enrich the academic experience of students and music lovers in our environment on their way to professionalism, allowing them to play and interact with the great masters of the current jazz scene.
