The final recording by legendary jazz fusion pioneers Larry Coryell and Alphonse Mouton in the reformed the Eleventh House in their all new album Seven Secrets. The late guitarist Coryell assembled founding members Randy Brecker (trumpet), long-timer John Lee (bass), the addition of son Julian (guitar) and the late Alphonse Mouzon (drums) to bring the rock and funk back to jazz again with a batch of eleven powerhouse tracks. The album is truly a group effort with Coryell relying on each member to contribute compositions to the new album, like he did back in the 70s.
The Eleventh House was an important jazz fusion group of the 1970s, led by the guitarist Larry Coryell. The band was formed in 1973 and disbanded in 1976. The Eleventh House, alongside bands such as The Mahavishnu Orchestra, Weather Report and Return to Forever, is considered as one of the pioneering jazz rock bands of the mid-1970s.
“In my opinion, jazz itself has not changed that much. So when you bring in talented all-stars like Randy, Alphonse, John and Julian, you get the same spirit as we had all those years ago. It’s still jazz the way we envision it, unique, exciting and open to genre-busting adventures. It won’t turn off any jazz lovers and we know it will excite people who aren’t quite sure if they like jazz … just as the vibe we and those other bands did in the ’70s. We’re still taking jazz to another level without disrespecting it and having an incredible time doing it!”
