Saxophonist, composer, and arranger Terry Landry is an esteemed mainstay of the recording studios of Los Angeles, and of the concert stages of the world.
A recipient of two Grammy awards (Album of the Year and Country Album of the Year, for his performances on the Dixie Chicks' Taking The Long Way), he continues to be the choice of the world's most prominent artists and producers, particularly on the baritone saxophone.
A specialist in the nuances of many musical styles, from those rooted in Americana, to World Music, Terry's deep, throaty saxophone sound has anchored the horn sections of Stevie Wonder, Natalie Cole, Tony Bennett, Celia Cruz, Sheila E., Lou Rawls, Royal Crowne Revue, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Billy Vera and the Beaters, Jack Mack & the Heart Attack, the Gerald Wilson Orchestra, France's Johnny Hallyday, and the Billy Vera Big Band, which Landry also contracts.
Landry is perhaps best known to Latino audiences as a member of the orchestra of superstar Luis Miguel's 2010-2011 world tour, which encompassed South America, the US, Canada, Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean.
From jazz, country, rock, and R&B, to the top artists of Japan, France, Africa, and Latin America, Terry is one of the most sought-after saxophonists in Los Angeles and throughout the globe.
