1986 Larry Carlton – Last Nite

Last Nite is a live album by Larry Carlton, released in 1986.  Recorded at the Baked Potato in North Hollywood, California, Carlton is supported by keyboardist Terry Trotter, bassist Abraham Laboriel, drummer John Robinson, and percussionist Alex Acuña.

Technical note: Carlton, who is known as “Mr. 335” because of his preference of the Gibson ES-335 semi-hollow body guitar in his early career, used a custom-made Valley Arts Strat solid-body guitar with active EMG pick-ups for these recordings, which accounts for the distinctly different tone when compared to earlier Carlton recordings.
