Larry Carlton
Renegade Gentleman
The Story
""Renegade Gentleman"," states Carlton, "is an album that had to be made. The mix of Southern rock and the Blues is exactly where my heart is today. I'm proud to bring my music to you in this new setting, and I am even more proud to introduce Terry McMillan (harmonica) to each of you. When you listen to the music on "Renegade Gentleman", enjoy the ride. Just sit back and be ready to rock and be moved" Recommended mostly due to Carlton's stretching out on the solo sections and his fresh approach to the blues/rock form.
