When Don Henley saw a Deadhead sticker on a Cadillac, he had Larry Klein lay down the perfect bassline! Larry Klein is a genre traversing Grammy Award winning producer, composer, multi-instrumentalist, collaborator, arranger, and master bassist who has forged a remarkably diverse body of work in the past five decades and counting.
Praised by Stanley Clarke early in his career for his work with Freddie Hubbard and Joe Henderson, Larry then expanded to the rock / folk / pop / Americana / world fusion / soundtrack realms and beyond -working on acclaimed releases by Chris Botti, Bryan Adams, Peter Gabriel, Pink, Seal, Walter Becker, Cher, Luciana Souza, Donna Summer, Madeleine Peyroux, Bob Dylan, and Tracy Chapman to cite a very, very, very select few.
Larry is most known to the masses for his association with Joni Mitchell, his former wife, with whom he waxed several groundbreaking slabs in the 1980s – 90s.
