Larry McKenna is one of the world’s finest jazz saxophone players. He is known for his gorgeous, velvety sound, the unparalleled beauty of his balladry and his fluid, bebop-inspired improvisations. For years, Mr. McKenna’s status as a jazz great has been affirmed by his myriad fans and the jazz stars with whom he has played and recorded including Woody Herman, Clark Terry, Buddy DeFranco, Tony Bennett, Rosemary Clooney and Frank Sinatra.

In addition to being a frequent guest on recordings by other top jazz players, Mr. McKenna has released three CDs under his own name to widespread critical acclaim. His most recent CD, Profile (Dreambox Media 2009), mixes jazz standards with his own original compositions, including the lovely and poignant ballad Perhaps This Wintertime with lyrics by Melissa Gilstrap, premiered by vocalist Nancy Reed.

Mr. McKenna resides in Philadelphia, Penn. with four cats (the feline variety).
