Guitar Legacy Tour Stops at Jazz Central

Syracuse NY – American blues guitarist and singer Murali Coryell will make a stop in Syracuse on Thursday, May 17th at downtown’s Jazz Central theater, fresh from a European tour supporting his latest release, “Mr. Senator.” Murali is a New York State Blues Hall of Famer and son of the legendary Larry Coryell. He will be joined on stage by Tom Westcott on bass and New York native Byron Cage on drums. Coryell’s appearance is presented by Live Space Entertainment.

Murali is a triple threat contemporary blues artist, an accomplished singer, writer and guitarist. As the son of guitar legend Larry Coryell, Murali grew up around music legends including Jimi Hendrix, Miles Davis, & Carlos Santana. He first toured with Richie Havens, and in 1995 joined Duke Robillard’s touring band. As a result, he was quickly signed to Big Mo Records as a solo artist, resulting in the first of his eight albums to date, the Stax/Volt influenced “Eyes Wide Open”. In addition to touring with his own band, Murali has toured as a featured artist with Larry Coryell, Bill Evans, and Joe Louis Walker. His most recent release “Mr. Senator” features special guests including saxophonist Bill Evans, bassist Tony Levin, and guitarist/vocalist Louie Ortega. Murali has toured the world with George Thorogood, Gregg Allman, B.B. King and Wilson Pickett, among others.
