Larry Carlton: Larry Carlton

Max Bell, New Musical Express, 23 September 1978

LARRY CARLTON, super side-man should need no introduction. The weeping, fluid style that Carlton rings from his 335 has become a definitive sound on albums by perfomers as diverse as Joni Mitchell, Ray Manzarek, Steely Dan and the Crusaders, the latter providing a backdrop for the precocious sophistication of the young Carlton eight years ago.
