Larry Carlton & Steve Lukather Band: The Paris Concert
Genre: Jazz Fusion
If you're not one of the lucky fans who applauded the long-awaited pairing of Larry Carlton and Steve Lukather - Larry, who was named guitarist of the year so often that the title of player emeritus was created for him alone, and Steve (formerly of Toto), a flamboyant guitar hero in his own right - this concert will blow away your reticence. The 2001 get-together of these two masters at their creative peak was an unforgettable experience fuelled by mutual love and respect, freedom of inspiration and the sheer pleasure of playing. Two musicians who have been friends for thirty years toasting each other between numbers on stage at the New Morning: could there be a better reminder that blues and rock find the main source of their energy in the complicity between musicians?
