Audio Taco is Larry Chaney''s highly eclectic debut guitar instrumental CD, began in Nashville and completed in Austin, featuring acclaimed players from both scenes. Ranging in style from quirky funk to Cuban Son to sonic soundscapes, there''s a little something for everyone.
Originally from Wichita, Kansas, Larry moved to Nashville in 1975. His easygoing demeanor and musical versatility have made him the sideman of choice for countless singer/songwriters and recording artists.
Larry is perhaps best known for his sonic inventiveness. For years, audiences have been amazed by his ability to produce incredibly varied textures from a Fender Strat and a relatively simple effects rack. His intuitive grasp of the inner workings of signal processing devices and the subsequent musical applications he has developed have greatly expanded the vocabulary of the electric guitar. The advances in technology since have kept Larry in the forefront of new guitar sounds, all the while emphasizing the musicality of his innovations.
Larry has recorded with contemporary folk and acoustic artists such as David Wilcox, Lainie Marsh, David Mallett, and Buddy Mondlock, toured with country artists Steve Earle, Gail Davies, and Dan Seals, and has shared the stage with artists such as Al Kooper, Steve Winwood, David Palmer(Jethro Tull), Jimmy Webb, Charlie Musselwhite and Joe Walsh. He has played on albums by rockers including Johnny Van Zant, Elizabeth Lee, J. Geils front man Peter Wolf, and R&B standouts Tracy Nelson, Felix Cavaliere, Pebble Daniels and Johnny Neel. Larry’s love for the exotic sounds of jazz, Latin, and world music led him to Tone Patrol in 1987, and later the salsa big band Grupo YaYa, where he can be heard playing the Puerto Rican cuatro, in addition to acoustic and electric guitar. He also contributed cuatro to the latin lounge project Charanga Cakewalk.
In January 1997, Guitar Player Magazine''s 30th Anniversary Issue included Larry in a feature article titled "The Dirty Thirty", which profiled such diverse guitar players as Buckethead, Junior Brown, Bill Frisell, and Neil Young. He currently is recording and touring as a member of the Edwin McCain Band. Most of the time, however, Larry can be found in Wimberley, Texas consistently turning in some of the most creative and tasteful guitar work to be found anywhere in the universe.
