Checking In With Lanny

We've talked before about Lanny Morgan. Regrettably we haven't checked in on the guy lately. We're pleased to report, among other things, he has his own website now at, and he's got a new sound - a sextet, in fact - and his album "6" has been nominated for almost as many Grammy awards as its title indicates - five is still pretty impressive.

If you didn't click back to what we said about Lanny five years ago, it still holds: HE IS THE BEST SAX PLAYER YOU'VE PROBABLY NEVER HEARD OF.

And who you probably saw hundreds of times in the 1970's on television... a member of the house band on "The Gong Show", always hanging out right over Chuck's shoulder. Even back then the cat could BLOW! And his four bar solos on the Gene Gene dance were NEVER enough. Good luck at the Grammys, Lanny!

I didn't want to append an already-published post, but I forgot to mention that Lanny is pretty much running his own show: he is acting as his own manager, and his PR is being handled by his wife Marty. Also, Lanny's also been appearing with the Frank Capp Juggernaut, and it was through searching for Frank Capp information that I found the connection to Lanny from there.
