Guitarist Larry Carlton is both a well respected session guitarist and leader; but also a icon that has played on well over 4,000 recordings ranging from jazz, soul, and film scores. In a career that spans some 45 years, Carlton’s distictive guitar style has added flavor to musicians like Donald Fagan, Joni Mitchell, The Crusaders, Quincy Jones, Michael Jackson, Mike Post and other bands and musicians that are way to long to mention. The 19-time-Grammy Award Nominee and 4-time winner was again nominated for an award during this year’s 2013 ceremonies and is a recipient of many other jazz and guitar awards.

Larry named his recording studio as well as his record label 335 Records after his nickname, which was named after a Gibson model guitar that he made famous during his time as a session musician during the 1970′s. His latest release “Larry Carlton and Robben Ford: Unplugged”, is a live set with famed blues guitarist Robben Ford.

NEW! Larry Carlton & Robben Ford Unplugged CD & DVD

First ever acoustic performance recorded with Robben Ford!

The New Morning club in Paris presents the incredible – and long awaited – pairing of two guitar giants for their first Unplugged show. Imagine: Larry Carlton and Special Guest Robben Ford, two legendary guitarists… one stage unplugged… a guitar lover’s dream! This unique pairing of two all-time great guitar legends delivers an unforgettable evening of dueling guitar solos and an uncompromising evening of The Blues performed the way it was meant to be.

Nineteen-time GRAMMY NOMINEE, four-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 the multi platinum jazz super group Fourplay. With more than 30 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.

Joining forces with Larry in Paris is Robben Ford who at 18 he was playing with the likes of Charlie Musselwhite, Jimmy Witherspoon, the L.A. Express with Tom Scott, George Harrison, and Joni Mitchell. He was a founding member of the Yellowjackets, then went on to tour with Miles Davis, Sadao Watanabe, and Little Feat. In 1992 he returned to his roots: the blues – a genre he masters in most exquisite grand style.
