SeattleJazzScene.com and The Royal Room welcome The Larry Goldings Trio (featuring Peter Bernstein and Bill Stewart) to Seattle for the first time on Thursday, June 20, 20013, for two shows at The Royal Room starting at 8:00pm

With his signature Hammond organ style and versatility on many keyboards, Boston native Larry Goldings (born 1968) has traversed not only the wide spectrum of jazz where he is perhaps best known, but also the worlds of funk, pop, and alternative music. High-in-demand as a sideman, Goldings' sound can be heard on scores of albums by artists in virtually every musical genre.

In recent years, his distinctive playing has graced the albums of Christina Aguilera, Walter Becker, Solomon Burke, Tracy Chapman, De La Soul, Robben Ford, Steve Gadd, Melody Gardot, Herbie Hancock, Jesse Harris, Colin Hay, India.Arie, Al Jarreau, Norah Jones, John Mayer, Madeleine Peyroux, John Pizzarelli, David Sanborn, Sia, Luciana Souza, and many others.

Goldings has collaborated closely, on the road and in the studio, with such artists as Michael Brecker, Pat Metheny, Jim Hall, Maceo Parker, Madeleine Peyroux, John Scofield, and James Taylor. Taylor's retrospective album, One Man Band (Hear Music), represents the culmination of two-and-a-half-year worldwide tour, with Goldings as Mr. Taylor's sole collaborator/accompanist, or "one man band." The album, which was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), features an original composition by Larry entitled "School Song."

As a leader, Larry has released 15 albums, many of which feature his long time organ trio with Peter Bernstein and Bill Stewart. This group is widely recognized for charting new ground, with the musicians' synergistic playing and their hard-swinging — yet very thoughtful — music. In 2007, Larry (alongside John Scofield and Jack DeJohnette) received a Best Jazz Album GRAMMY nomination for their recording, Trio Beyond - Saudades (ECM).

The Royal Room is All Ages until 10 pm.

Please note: tickets do not guarantee a seat to shows at the Royal Room. For sold out shows standing room may be the only available space. Please come early to ensure you get a table. Reservations can be made for those who are coming for dinner as well as the show.
