BETHEL, NY — Murali Coryell (, son of the legendary fusion guitarist Larry Coryell, will perform solo at the Dancing Cat Saloon ( on Saturday, April 6 starting at 7 p.m.

Mark Uricheck of Living Blues wrote, “Coryell’s effortlessly smooth, funky chops and smoky vocals dominate a set that is as loose and uninhibited as it is delicately passionate.… Stretching out, as to leave no corner of the stage sweat-free, Murali and his band go heavy on the hot sauce, turning in a performance that likely left a few blisters.” Coryell has opened for acts from BB King to Wilson Pickett.

Jazz fans can get an earful the night before at the Dancing Cat, on Friday, April 5 at 7 p.m., with a performance by songstress Joanna Morton Gary backed by the Jazz Cats—Barry Scheinfeld on guitar and Don Miller on bass.
