Larry Carlton is an American guitarist who built his career as a studio musician in the 1970s and ’80s for acts such as Steely Dan and Joni Mitchell. He has participated in thousands of recording sessions, recorded on hundreds of albums in many genres, for television and movies, and on more than 100 gold records. Larry delivered his self-titled debut for Warner Bros. in 1978, shortly after he was recognized for his ground-breaking guitar playing on Steely Dan’s Royal Scam album. (Carlton contributed the memorable guitar solo on “Kid Charlemagne.”) He released four more albums for Warner Bros., Strikes Twice (1980), Sleepwalk (1981), Eight Times Up (1982), and the Grammy-nominated Friends (1983).
He continued studio session work and touring in between, emerging again in 1986 on MCA Records with an all-acoustic album, Discovery, which contained an instrumental remake of Michael McDonald’s hit, “Minute by Minute.” The single won a Grammy Award for Best Pop Instrumental Performance in 1987. Carlton’s live album, Last Nite, released in 1987, got him a Grammy nomination for Best Jazz Instrumental Performance.

Special Thanks to My Supporters:
Larry Carlton is just a beautiful human being. What a phenomenal phenomenal gentleman. So is Rick. The generosity of spirit of these guys. And the music they've given us – it's riches beyond the imagination.
I would agree Rick. Both solo's, are by far the most pleasing to my ear!
Kind of disappointed they did not discuss the crusaders years
Larry on the Crusaders free as the wind was my favorite solo then he became a official Crusader.
I loved Mr Carlton's work with the Crusaders.
Larry is such a sweet and humble guy. Thank a lot Ricky
Larry is the king. Seriously. It isn't that those known for guitar are bad…they are great. But seriously…this dude impacted music more than most anyone
BTW- You guys look like you could be brothers
Rick- you are so freaking good at this. You amplify the musicality in music and we are all the richer for it.
