Lawrence "Larry" Cecil Adler, (February 10 1914 – August 7 2001), was an accomplished musician, widely acknowledged as one of the world's most skilled harmonica players. He was mostly known for his collaborations with musicians such as Sting George Gershwin, Kate Bush and composer Ralph Vaughan Williams.
Adler moved to the United Kingdom in 1949, having been forced to leave the USA after accusations of sympathising with communism. This led to a general sentiment of disregard for him in North America during the 1950s.
Apart from his career as a musician, Adler also made appearances in several movies. He was also known as a prolific letter writer, with his correspondence with the satirical magazine Private Eye becoming legendary. Larry wrote an autobiography - entitled It Ain't Necessarily So - in 1985, and worked as a food critic for Harpers & Queen for some time.
