Larry Carlton
An immensely prolific Grammy-winning guitarist and composer that has mined the sonic sweet spot between smooth jazz, blues and funk since his emergence in the mid 70's. After playing on hundreds of massively successful records by artists like Steely Dan, Joni Mitchell and others, as well as a stint with The Crusaders, Carlton made a name for himself as a solo act with smooth jazz hits like "Room 335" and "Sleepwalk."

The Art of Cape Ann Sightseeing Tour - Rockport

Meet the Artists In Their Studios! “Unlike a gallery that brings the works of an artists to the public, The Art of Cape Ann Tour will bring the public into our working environment. It is a unique opportunity for visitors to engage with artists and experience the culture of art on Cape Ann.” Explains Cape Ann Artist Melody Phaneuf. Gloucester is home of our nations oldest running artist colony, Rocky Neck, and today more than 2000 artists call this area home.  Starting in the early 1800's, artists have been painting, sculpting, and capturing the spirit of this charming and picturesque village.  This is a special tour for Art Week, and we will combine history, seaside sightseeing and demonstrations by local artists. With multiple (4-5) stops, we will discover artists of the past along our narrated tour passing by homes painted by Edward Hopper, landscapes featured in art and poetry, and iconic scenery that has captivated visitors for centuries as we journey by bus to visit the working art studios, and beautiful galleries nestled around Cape Ann. Light snacks will be served in some of the studios, everyone will receive a canvas backpack with snacks, a bottle of water and brochures to help you find more of our local artists when you are ready to return again. Prior to the start of the event on our facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/PluginCapeAnnTours), we will provide the names and a links to the artists and the studios which we will visit during each tour.   Call for more information.  Reservations are recommended to secure your place.

Larry Carlton

Larry Carlton is known as an immensely prolific Grammy-winning guitarist and composer that has mined the sonic sweet spot between smooth jazz, blues and funk since his emergence in the mid 70’s. After playing on hundreds of massively successful records, as well as stints with both The Crusaders and Fourplay, Carlton made a name for himself as a solo act with smooth jazz hits like “Room 335” and “Sleepwalk.”

Born and raised in California, Carlton honed his guitar skills from a young age, falling in love with the sounds of Joe Pass, Wes Montgomery and B.B. King. Starting out in the clubs and cafes of Los Angeles in the 60’s, Carlton soon started getting regular studio work with an astonishingly diverse array of artists including Steely Dan (including the now iconic solo on their classic “Kid Charlemagne”), Joni Mitchell, Linda Ronstadt, Michael Jackson, Quincy Jones, Bobby Bland, Paulinho Da Costa, the Fifth Dimension, Herb Alpert, Dolly Parton, Andy Williams, and the Partridge Family among others.

Carlton’s solo work began in 1968 (With a Little Help from my Friends), but took a backseat with Carlton joining the jazz/funk group The Crusaders for several albums in the 70’s. In 1978 he returned to his solo career with an eponymous record that featured the radio staples “Room 335” and “Nite Crawler.” Carlton’s reimagined cover of the Santo & Johnny classic “Sleepwalk” made a sizable dent in the pop charts in 1981, which was also the same year he won his first Grammy, for his “Theme to Hill Street Blues.” He would go on to win three more Grammys.  In 1998 Carlton took Lee Ritenour’s place in the popular fusion group Fourplay, where he would remain for over a decade. His most recent records include live duo records with Robben Ford and David T. Walker and a studio record of re-recorded and reinterpreted songs called Four Hands and One Heart.
