Description

An audio recording of "Something," composed by George Harrison (1943-2001) and performed by Larry Coryell (b. 1943) live on-air on WUCF-FM on June 8, 1999. Coryell is an American jazz fusion guitarist, composer, and one of the pioneers of jazz-rock, a fusion genre that combines elements of blues, rock, country, and bop. Considered by many to be one of the greatest guitarists of all time, Coryell has shared the stage with Miles Davis (1926-1991) and Jimi Hendrix (1942-1970). He has remained active since the 1960s, recording over 100 albums. "Something" was written by Harrison and released on the Beatles' 1969 album, Abbey Road. It is the second-most covered Beatles song after "Yesterday."
