He has performed and recorded with jazz greats Jeremy Stieg and Eddie Gomez. Baeder has collaborated with Evidence recording artist Nora York, and legendary Canadian songwriter Jane Sibery.

During that time Larry played with legendary blues artists Muddy Waters, James Cotton, Junior Wells, Bonnie Raitt, John Lee Hooker, Buddy Guy, Matt “Guitar” Murphy, Albert King, and Dan “Elwood Blues” Akroyd, while also producing tracks for several Boston artists. In the recording studio, the late Jimmy Miller, producer for The Rolling Stones, Steve Winwood, Traffic and Blind Faith, included Baeder on much of his later work. By the mid-eighties, Larry was recording sessions with Buddy Guy, James Taylor, and Carly Simon, as well as playing on jingles and film scores.
Baeder has performed in Europe, the Middle East, South America, and Africa.
