JAZZ | Larry Carlton


There's smooth jazz and then there's the music of Larry Carlton, who is just too good to be pigeonholed under that label. That's Carlton you hear on Joni Mitchell's "Court And Spark" album. And that's him playing the great guitar solo on Steely Dan's "Kid Charlemagne." And then there are his four Grammy Awards, including one for his catchy instrumental take on "Minute By Minute." Along with his 13 albums with the Crusaders, and three dozen as a leader, Carlton has enhanced the music of Quincy Jones, John Lennon, Michael Jackson, Dolly Parton, and many more.

Larry Carlton performs Tuesday, December 5, at Funk 'N Waffles, 204 North Water Street. 6 p.m. $40 advance; $45 door; $79 VIP.;
