Larry Tamanini is one of the most accomplished jazz guitarists to emerge from the Philadelphia area in the last 20 years. 

While still in highschool Larry found himself developing a unique guitar pedigree from lessons with Jazz guitar legend Pat Martino and noted instructor Dennis Sandole.

The rich musical heritage that Larry acquired from these two men was augmented by many nights of performing, hanging-out and being able to absorb as much jazz culture as possible at Ortliebs's Jazzhaus in North Philly with the likes of Mickey Roker, Trudy Pitts, and Bootsie Barnes led to musical encounters with Joey DeFrancesco, Lenny White, Charles Famborough  Phil Woods, Richie Cole and an appearance on NPR's Jazz Night  in America.

Larry has also released two award winning albums as a leader 2011's Lookin' Into It and 2019's Front and Center. 

Larry can also be heard as a sideman with such diverse and talented artists such as Mark Adams, Roy Ayers, Mike Boone, Richie Havens, Sister Sledge, Rhenda Fearrington, John Swana, Tim Wolfe
