Larry Ritchie was a jazz drummer and record/CD producer. He was born in Brooklyn, New York as Lawrence Ritchie to Walter Ritchie, an electrician, and Pearl Ritchie, a domestic worker, both of whom were migrants from rural Virginia.

He has recorded with John Coltrane,[1] Ray Draper, and Jackie McLean. Examples of his jazz work are provided by McLean's Strange Blues (1957) and Freddie Redd's Music from The Connection (1960).[2]

Ritchie was also a talented painter and by the mid-1960s, he devoted more of his time to painting than to music.
