Since 2013, Adam has released four albums under his own name. Simple Beauty (2013), Overdue Ovation (2013),  Selective Amnesia (2015-Inner Circle Music) and Second City (2017- Inner Circle Music).

“The tenor saxophonist Adam Larson is the sort of jazz musician who gets flagged early on as a promising talent and then hustles to meet every requirement for success. At 25, he’s still forming his identity as an artist, but his third album, “Selective Amnesia” (Inner Circle), suggests that he’s closing in on something perceptive and streamlined. He has a fine rhythm section, with Fabian Almazan on piano, Matthew Stevens on guitar, Matt Penman on bass and Jimmy Macbride on drums. And his compositions are thoughtful, with ample breathing room for any soloists. (They reciprocate with excellent work, especially Mr. Stevens on an anthemic ballad called “Gratitude.”) Mr. Larson’s own improvisations tend to be articulate and brisk, darting up and down his range. This album is a good marker for him, a sign of how far he has come and a new standard for him to beat”

- Nate Chinen, New York Times

“Adam Larson’s fourth CD is a wonderfully cohesive set….The well-crafted compositions, beautifully burnished tone and startling command of the instrument mark this 27-year-old Bronx resident and native Midwesterner as a world-class talent”

- Jazziz Magazine

“He possesses a rhythmic sophistication and compositional cleverness that should help him distinguish himself from the pack of young tenorists on the current scene….With undeniable command over his instrument, Larson can do just about anything. His upper-register playing is superb.”

- All About Jazz

Adam Larson is quickly becoming a name to be reckoned with in contemporary jazz circles as Second City is a fine example of quartet jazz. Highly recommended.

- Jon Neudorf

“Selective Amnesia continues the starbright trajectory of a once-wunderkind now maturing into the role of  21st century composer, bandleader and exceptional performer.”

- Andrea Canter, Jazz Police

“Larson’s saxophone skills are beyond the norm; he’s also a prolific composer.”

- Downbeat Magazine

“ [Simple Beauty] confirms that he’s one of the most potent and promising saxophonists of his generation, and composer of tunes with a keen, contemporary edge..”

- Peter Hum, The Ottawa Citizen

“…everyone checked their egos at the door of the studio and let their stories unfold without forcing them. They cuddled, nudged and negotiated music delicately, yet decisively, and the result is simply beautiful…”

- Rio Sakairi, Director of Programming at The Jazz Gallery, NYC

“…He has a strong and unpretentious tone, and a line that is really easy to follow but which takes the listener on an interesting ride…The title track shows Larson equally lyrical on soprano, once more eschewing any showing off in favour of more eloquent and heartfelt storytelling..”

- Peter L. Bacon, The JazzBreakfast

“…Jazz is full of subtleties, and on Simple Beauty, Larson shows a mastery of many of them, including the art of integrating harmony and rhythm into forceful compositions…”

- S. Victor Aaron, Something Else Reviews

“…an up-and-coming young artist who, despite his age, has already begun to establish an impressive and varied career.  He not only has achieved a respected and powerful presence in the jazz community, but is also comfortable as an educator, clinician, and writer.  We are thrilled to have Adam Larson on our roster of esteemed artists…”
