Laid back: An adjective used to describe a feeling of relaxation, laziness, or slowness; often describes the feeling that a performer is playing his rhythms a little later than they are expected, almost after the beat or "behind" the beat.

Lay out: To stop playing while the other players continue.

Legato: A style of playing in which the notes are smoothly connected with no silences between them (opposite of staccato).

Lick: A phrase or melodic fragment.

Liturgical: Pertaining to the rites and services of a religious service.

Locked-hands style: A style of piano playing in which a separate chord parallels each note of the melody because both hands are used as though they are locked together, all fingers striking the keyboard together; also known as block chording, playing the chord notes as a block instead of one a time, (a la) Milt Buckner, Ahmad Jamal, George Shearing, Lennie Tirstano, Red Garland, and Bill Evans.
