Almost as good as being there

"I've seen Larry Carlton 4 times over the years. He was really 'on' twice and seemed a bit uninterested the other two. This record is definitely Larry on a good night. He gets into one of his patented runs on "Don't Give It Up" that makes you think he could go on forever spitting out clean, melodic lines. And "Last Nite" has a really wild run where he seems to chase down the melody for a good 2 minutes before he finally catches it. My only complaint is the horns that were added later in the studio. It takes away from the live, spontaneous vibe of the tunes. Still, if you only know Larry Carlton from his mellow jazz period this is a great place to get acquainted with his earlier, shall we say, "more energetic" days."

"The man lives the guitar; his must be surgically attached. One can honestly feel his guitar breathe in "The B.P. Blues". His decades as a session guitarist have tempered his into a style one no one else comes close to. The seemimg simplicity and emotional depth of some of his riffs - man alive! This is one of the finest jazz-fusion albumns I've ever had the pleasure to listen to. It's one of those albumns make's me wish I'd taken up knitting instead of the can anyone be that good? I can't stop listening to it!"

"Larry Carlton - Last Night
This album opened my eyes to the possibilities of fusion guitar - the subtlety the electric guitar is capable of and what a master can do to completely control tone and distortion. It also extended my view of the blues and jazz genres - the way he included arpeggiated ideas and intervallic leaps in his licks was new to me at the time, also. It's the only Larry Carlton album that I ever listen to these days as the others are too smooth and commercial for my tastes. This performance is a gem and is essential listening for anyone interested in jazz or fusion guitar."
