Larry Baeder
Larry Baeder was born in Philadelphia and raised in Kansas City, Missouri.  Many of the older jazz greats who were from KC, such as Count Basie, Charlie Parker, and Lester Young, were still alive when he was growing up.  

As a teenager, Larry played a classical violin.  Larry’s explanation of his preference for the electric guitar is filled with musical lore. The electric guitar was invented in the U.S. It is loud! Since the1950's, the guitar has been the dominant instrument of our musical culture. It’s affordable and portable. Something about electric guitar connects to a young man in a very primal way. 

Larry moved to New York started playing guitar for the soul legend, Chuck Jackson (Any Day Now), a staple at the Apollo Theater,  He continues to play with Chuck in New York, making this the longest association in his musical career. 

Larry remembers his a special moment touring with the Temptations before an audience of 100,000 in a stadium when everyone began to sing along with "My Girl.” It took his breath away.
