As well as recording and performing, LaRue is also a composer with almost 40 compositions to his credit, many of which have appeared on recordings by Greenwich Blue, The Michael Ross Quartet, and his own projects. His first solo project titled Dark Water has just been released featuring his original compositions. There are also some other recording projects in the works with Tom Brantley, Jeremy Douglas, Chuck Owen's tribute to Michael Brecker, Tom Carabasi, Patrick Bettison, and a duo album with Jeremy Powell. He also has written for two Mel Bay anthologies. He is the jazz guitar instructor at the University of South Florida and currently resides in Tampa, FL with his beautiful wife, Joy, and his slightly less attractive cat, Ornette.

The LaRue Nickelson Group features, Ryan Pate on guitar, Jeremy Powell on saxophone, Joe Porter on bass, and Ian Goodman on drums. Come listen to some great jazz and interact with the band and this month's emcee, ADTBJA member Kenny Walker.
