Larry Carlton with Special Guest Robben Ford, Two Legendary Guitarist... One Stage. This CD is a guitar lover's dream!
Sixteen-time Grammy nominee, three-time Grammy winner and all-time guitar great, Larry Carlton established himself from his first recording, A Little Help From My Friends. His studio credits include musicians and groups like Steely Dan, Joni Mitchell, Michael Jackson, Sammy Davis Jr., Herb Alpert, Quincy Jones, Bobby Bland, Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt and literally dozens of others. He went on to perform with the Crusaders and then with Fourplay. With 26 albums to his credit and having performed on over 100 albums that have gone Gold or Platinum, Larry Carlton has set a standard for artistry that spans three decades.
Now joining forces with Robben Ford who at 18 was playing with the likes of Charlie Musselwhite, Jimmy Witherspoon, the L.A. Express with Tom Scott, George Harrison, and Joni Mitchell. In 1977, he was a founding member of the Yellowjackets, which he stayed with until 1983. Ford then toured with Miles Davis, Sadao Watanabe and Little Feat, but he seemed to really find himself in 1992 when he returned to his roots: the blues. Today, possessing a resume that includes stints with an impressively broad range of other musical personalities, Ford has demonstrated an uncanny adaptability similar to that of the MG's and the Muscle Shoals group. This guitarist effortlessly traverses genres without compromising his exquisite, blues-based playing and singing.
This unique paring of two all-time great guitar legends promises to deliver an unforgettable evening of dueling guitar solos and an uncompromising evening of The Blues performed the way it was meant to be.
