Event Schedule : 8:00 PM & 10:00 PM
Son of jazz-rock fusion guitar legend Larry Coryell and author/actress Julie Coryell, contemporary soul blues artist Murali Coryell grew up surrounded by great music – by the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Miles Davis and Carlos Santana. Murali began playing drums at age 8 and continued through junior high school. He started playing guitar after discovering the blues in his early teens. “I was into the music of Led Zeppelin, particularly a minor blues tune called ‘Since I’ve Been Loving You’. My dad told me if I wanted to hearsome REAL blues to get B.B. King’s ‘Live At The Regal’ which to this day, I consider one of the greatest recordings ever made. The emotion and sadness in B.B. King’s voice and guitar really spoke to me. That’s When I first picked up a guitar.” He took lessons for a while but picked up most of what he learned from listening to the music of other blues guitar greats…besides B.B., from early Clapton, Albert Collins, Jimi Hendrix and Albert King.
