Just a few weeks after Guitar Player Magazine presented Larry Carlton with their Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition of his many amazing accomplishments – including 18 Grammy nominations and 3 Grammies – we are proud to offer you the magical concert Larry gave at the New Morning in 2004 with his fabulous Sapphire Blues Band. A musical jewel indeed! Backed by the funky horn section of the SBB, Carlton sets his fans on fire for a scorching journey into the heart of the Blues. This extraordinary concert is a model of discreet musical sophistication as well as a declaration of love to the Blues from the fingertips of one of the greatest living guitarists. We can hardly wait for more, Larry!
