This Normal, Illinois native brings his evocative style to New York City on this Best of 2015 release. Larson has chops, as his tenor tastefully swings, but he’s also a stellar arranger. His heady band of fellow New York-based collaborators includes pianist Fabian Almazan, guitarist Matthew Stevens, bassist Matt Penman and drummer Jimmy MacBride, who join Larson on a series of emotionally and harmonically complex compositions. The result is a collection of songs which are satisfying on more than one level. Check out the songs “Shitpay” and “Your Loss.”
