Larry Carlton built his career as one of the premiere studio musicians of the 1970s and '80s. He is well known for his work with artists such as Steely Dan, Joni Mitchell, Michael Jackson, and dozens of other household names. He has participated in thousands of recording sessions, recorded on hundreds of albums in many genres, for movies and television (including a Grammy award for his performance on the Hill Street Blues theme song). He played on more than 100 gold and platinum records. During this time he developed a signature style and sound that continues to influence guitarists all over the world.

Beginning in the ‘80s Larry focused primarily on his work as a jazz and blues solo artist, and has released 38 albums, three of which won additional Grammy awards. He also spent over a decade touring with jazz super group Fourplay, but since 2010 he has toured exclusively as a solo artist with a virtuosic ensemble including his son Travis on bass guitar.
