Larry Ridley is a mainstay Jazz bassist, having appeared on countless sessions as a sideman. He studied at Indiana University and the Lenox School of Jazz. After gigging in his hometown with Freddie Hubbard, James Spaulding, and Wes Montgomery, Ridley relocated to New York where he has been active ever since. Among his more significant musical associations in the 1960s were with Art Farmer, Red Garland, Slide Hampton, Jackie McLean, Lee Morgan, Max Roach, Sonny Rollins, Horace Silver, and George Wein’s Newport All-Stars (1969). He was Thelonious Monk’s regular bassist from 1970-1973, then became involved in jazz education, heading the jazz program and music department at Rutgers. He worked with Philly Joe Jones’ Dameronia (1981-1985) and has remained active up until the present time.
