Amazing Grace – How Sweet The Sound With Larry Carlton On Guitar

Fourplay is a jazz quartet featuring Bob James on keyboards, Larry Carlton on guitar (he replaced Lee Ritenour back in 1997),  Nathan East on bass and Harvey Mason on drums.

I would say they lean more towards smooth jazz  than traditional.

Quick word on Larry Carlton, in his heyday as a session musician, he would play on 500+ recordings every year. He’s been heard on albums ranging from Michael Jackson, the theme to Hill Street Blues, the Partridge Family to Steely Dan. If you’re a Steely Dan fan then you’ll know his lead guitar work on songs like Kid Charlemagne, Don’t Keep Me Alive and Josie.

In 1999, Fourplay released a Christmas CD titled, “Snowbound.” And it features of lot of outstanding Larry Carlton guitar work.

Tonight I’ll feature Fourplay’s take on Amazing Grace and a bluesy version of Santa Claus Is Coming To Town
