Only two reviews so far?

"This must be a reissue or something if only two people wrote reviews. And one of them wasn't impressed! Maybe it's not Carlton's most rockin', but it's not typical instrumental slap-together doggerel, either. It's a "smooth jazz" analog for Coltrane's "Ballads" - a rare virtuoso in a mellow mood. And to be fair, the album is upfront about being downtempo; it's called "Sleepwalk.""
Got me started in Jazzy stuff

"I've been a guitar player for 25 years. About 22 years ago I picked up this album. No idea why. It wasn't me. I was a rocker. Anyhow, this album led me into jazz guitar. Larry is an awesome player. Did you see who else plays on this? Jeff Pocaro on drums. Great music. This is a slow tempo CD. It's a chill out kind of thing. His new CD is a rocker though. But if your looking at good lad back music and some nice playing this is it. It's not going to rip or anything though. He's not a flashy guy. Conservative but right on the money and you can tell he bleeds studio work.
A master's touch....

"Larry Carlton is the rarest of birds...as a player his touch and feel are peerless. Do you love great instrumentalists?... this album is wall-to-wall beautiful tone and phrasing. No there are no rock jams like "Kid Charlemagne", but the cliche-free rock edginess of that tune is not the only feather in Carlton's cap...music just pours out of this guy...he's got the delicate vocal touch of B.B. and Clapton, but with a voice all his own. I don't much care for labels like 'smooth jazz' or 'pop' as they not only tend to turn people off (myself included) they also do not represent the content of a record like this (although "smooth jazz" may be completely appropriate referring to Kenny G.)...that being said, this is a kind of instrumental R&B record with Larry's guitar in the role of vocalist...thankfully it has a live feel and warm 70's analog production. It is a delicate set of music, but I mean this in a very good way, as it is very dynamic. And check out the none-too-subtle nod to Jeff Beck's "Scatterbrain" on "You Gotta Get It While You Can"..."
