New album by Adam Larson Overdue Ovation

Adam Larson's newest album

“Overdue Ovation” is the sophomore release from saxophonist-composer Adam Larson. This album features six new compositions from Larson as well as contributions from co-producer and frequent collaborator with Larson, Nils Weinhold and the standard “Remember”, by Irving Berlin.

“I wanted to record what I consider the other side of my composing”, says Larson, adding, “Simple Beauty (Larson’s first record), gave me the opportunity to explore one side of my composing; this record allows me to explore another”. The title for the album is a tribute of sorts to Larson’s parents; mother Peggy, and father, John. “They are such a huge part of my musical upbringing, and I wouldn’t be where I am today without them”, he says. Taking a slightly different approach for personnel on this endeavor, Larson sticks with pianist Can Olgun, and adds Midwest-native and soon to be Juilliard graduate, trumpeter Gabe Medd to his list of peer collaborators. “Can is who I hear on piano and Gabe and I have had a great rapport since we were young; both sound excellent on this record.” For the rhythm section, Larson enlists veteran players Jay Anderson and Rodney Green.
