Larry Carlton - Jazz a Vienne

Larry Carlton – Jazz a Vienne Festival (2012). Larry Carlton is a living legend. Lyrical and melodic, always telling a story, not a wasted note, no gratuitous pyrotechnics, great feeling/phrasing, soulful touch, always with great tone, groove, classy swing, knows about understatement, but he can burn too – if he feels like it’s appropriate. BTW, the rhythm section of keys, bass and drums is impeccable in its pocket, dynamics -always playing to the music, to the sound. Great performance!!!
Produced by : Zycopolis Productions, Directed by : Patrick Savey

Larry Carlton & Tak Matsumoto

East meets West! This amazing collaboration between legendary guitarist Larry Carlton and Japanese rock icon, Tak Matsumoto has truly proven to be a record for the ages. To kick things off, the 2010 “Take Your Pick” tour sold out 18 shows in 20 minutes all throughout Japan, ending in a spectacular headlining performance at the world famous Tokyo Jazz Festival. This unique sound of jazz mixed with hints of rock and fusion caused the album to debut at #2 on the Japanese pop rock charts which marks the first time an instrumental record has done so in 35 years. As the record continues to climb the US jazz charts, Larry and Tak continue to showcase their superior musicianship all throughout the world.
