Musicscribe – 5 Stars
Blistering lines, energetic rhythms and melodically pleasing melodies – these are descriptivism’s I would use if asked to describe Larry Corban’s, The Circle Starts Here disc. Corban employs two luminary players with his debut offering, not as hired guns but as regular bandmates. Though this is Corban’s debut CD; he is far from a beginner – he has honed his skills in the true classroom of the bandstand trenches as a full time working musician, composer, and arranger. The Circle Starts Here is a formative calling card destined to catapult Corban to the forefront of jazz guitar fans.
