Title: Ellis Larkins (adult)
Abstract: Known as the connoisseur's jazz artist, pianist Ellis Larkins began his early musical training at home in Baltimore. By the age of seven, young Larkins was playing Mozart. Ellis Larkins studied on full scholarship with Austin Conradi and Pasquale Tallerico at the segregated Peabody Conservatory (he was not permitted to attend classes) before going on to the Juilliard School. For his senior recital there Larkins gave a stunning impromptu demonstration on the similarities between the melodic lines of Bach and boogie-woogie. (Photo courtesy of: Mr. and Mrs. Ellis Larkins)
