Larry Ching was a star performer at the legendary Forbidden City nightclub in San Francisco in the Forties and Fifties. Now, at age 82, he has made his first album, entitled Till the End of Time and produced by journalist, broadcaster and AsianConnections columnist Ben Fong-Torres.
Ching, backed by pianist George Yamasaki, along with veteran bassist Dean Reilly (Vince Guaraldi, Carmen McRae) and drummer Jim Zimmerman (Cleo Laine, Dianne Schuur), recorded the album at S.F. State University�s studios.
Till the End of Time features 12 of Larry�s favorite standards, including several tunes reflecting his native Hawaii, plus four bonus cuts of unknown origin. Ching recorded the songs (including the title tune) "sometime in the Forties," he says. They were found on 78 r.p.m. acetate disks, and have been restored by engineer John Barsotti for this, their first release in 60 years.
