I never met Larry Coryell but from what I heard from other musicians he was a really nice guy. He was also usually labeled a jazz guitarist who contributed a lot to the origins of what became known as "fusion" jazz, but he was so much more than that... in my opinion a lot of 1960s and '70s jazz, rock and other genres of music makers owed his technique and style for a lot of theirs (I'm talking to you Grateful Dead, and other jam bands, among others)... here's an example of the lightness and originality of his guitar mastery... condolences to his family, friends, and fans...
