    did a great job, really put alot of work into the track

  2. Review By: excelsiorsound Jun 27, 2019

    Yup, he did it again. Larry took the time to come up with something out of the box for a nice simple ballad that worked out beautifully. His dedication shows, and the selection of different instruments and timbres was flawless matching the song perfectly. My new go-to session percussionist!

  3. Review By: excelsiorsound Jun 23, 2019

    Having Larry work on this project has been a great pleasure. He's very professional and a talented arranger. He understood what the song needed and played it beautifully. He made sure I was happy with his choices of instruments and arrangements at every step as he layered his part. The tracks were very well recorded too. Exceeded my expectations . Highly recommended!

  4. Review By: Sogrates May 23, 2019

    Tremendous level of detail, works with you through each step of the song and across a range of instruments.

  17. Review By: thegoldenohm Feb 18, 2019

    If you want your track to have that extra little "touch" you need to use this service. Very creative, provides excellent direction and communication... someone who you know is simply an expert at what they do. Amazing stuff.

  18. Review By: TheFlow Feb 15, 2019

    This review won't do Larry justice as he is a musical wizard and a true professional. He is a great communicator that genuinely does his best to compose parts that enhance and evaluate the music. He makes great suggestions that go beyond the percussive elements of the song and keeps in mind how everything works together for overall composition and mix. Am truly grateful for his work ethic, flexibility, attention to detail, and amazing talent. Thanks Larry!

  19. Review By: VoiceOfJacob Feb 1, 2019

    Another masterpiece. I sincerely appreciate that he tried several ideas and settled for the ones that worked best. Any of the ideas could have worked perfectly. He is a perfectionist and is 100% committed to the task at hand. What more can I ask for?

  24. Review By: Davecork Jan 5, 2019

    Larry knocked it out of the park on my first time working with him and it’s been a joy ... he knew exactly what I needed on the track and delivered a top quality percussion track which has added magic to the feel of the song ... thanks Larry ... Dave

    Once again Larry's dedication to play exactly what the song needs and his intuition to work that out is exceptional.

  35. Review By: FlamencoMark Oct 17, 2018

    I have worked with many different percussionists on various projects over the last 14 years or so, and I honestly do not think that I will find anyone as talented and great to work with as Larry, but that's okay - because now I've discovered Larry, I don't need to :-)

    Another great performance by the master. I would trust my tracks with no other percussionist; Larry puts his heart and soul into every track. His music is heard all over the world; now Senegal West Africa is enjoying his work. Thanks again and until next time - Macca

  51. Review By: crosskulture Aug 1, 2018

    Look no further for your percussion needs; simply put, Larry is the best. He keeps you updated at every step of the recording process and makes the track his own. He goes over and beyond my expectations every time he delivers a new track. Thanks brother for your hard work and dedication - Macca (Senegal; West Africa)

  52. Review By: sonny Jul 12, 2018

    Larry is a real pleasure to work with, he keeps you involved in every stage of the process. What I particularly liked about this process was that at every stage he sent me a version to listen to, and then developed on the feedback from that - it really suited the way I work.
    To be honest he goes over and beyond the price you pay, and I suppose more importantly he is a very talented percussionist - I will be back!

  53. Review By: BentleyK Apr 29, 2018

    I was shooting for the moon and Larry helped me land among the stars. I precisely detailed my desires and goals at the same time allowing him to draw upon his years of experiance to deliver a beautiful masterpiece. With Larry, not only do you get a great percussionist but you get someone who has mastered the art of mic placement and recording techniques.  If intricacy and complexity are required for your track, Larry can deliver...  look no further for all of your percussion needs...

    This has once again been quite an interesting and priceless musical experience. A front row seat to greatness. I am motivated and impressed by the depth of knowledge that HandPercussion displays about his instruments. The good thing is he doesn't just talk. He really knows how to play the instruments. Most important of all, he makes it a duty to understands your music; relates to it, and based on his wealth of experience, gives it a good and accurate diagnosis and provides a much needed cure.

  84. Review By: VoiceOfJacob Oct 7, 2016

    Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience. I will definitely be back for more. These are rich sounds for my project and your superb knowledge and mastery of your craft is a welcome gift to every song.
    Communication is great. It's as if I was with you in the studio. Changes were made as if in real time. The sounds are rich. I love the effects as well. The talking Drum, bells, you name it, I love it all. Thank you so much.

  85. Review By: SchoolBus Sep 26, 2016

  89. Review By: synthessis May 1, 2016

    Larry is just great percussionist! Working with him is wonderful experience. Somehow I got a feeling this wasn't an online collaboration, because he is extremely responsive, creative and attentive and will take an extra mile to make one happy. Very experienced and skilled. He delivers great sounding

  90. Review By: WolfW Apr 16, 2016

    Another incredible experience.
    From pod rattles, frame drums, castanets and shaker sweeps to finger cymbals, chimes, maracas and gongs --

    There’s a real skill, craft and feel to what he does.
    A true artist. 12 STARS

  91. Review By: WolfW Apr 11, 2016
