Jazz Alliance –
Larry Carlton –


Welcome to Something Blue, I’m Hairy Larry and I’ve got the Blues, for you.


Oh yeah, Jazz Alliance recorded live right here in Jonesboro at The Edge and at Gracie’s Place. We heard “Formula 251” and kicking us off tonight Jazz Alliance played “12 Bar Bruise”.

Playing on the recordings tonight are Ron Horton, trumpet; Craig Collison, vibes and drums; David Eckert, bass; and Mike Overall, drums. And on this next song, “Partly Cloudy” it’s Derek Doyle on bass.


And that’s Jazz Alliance playing “Partly Cloudy”. These songs were recorded right here in Jonesboro. You’re listening to Something Blue on KASU and I’m bringing you more live music tonight. There’s no music like live music and you can hear Jazz Alliance play in Jonesboro almost every week. I’ve got two more for you now, “Pulling Across The Lawn” and “Blues In A Hurry”.



1 – Friday Night Shuffle
3 – Night Sweats

All right now, we’re listening to Larry Carlton with the Nashville Horns recorded Live at the Crystal Bay Casino in Lake Tahoe on June 17, 2005. We heard “Friday Night Shuffle” and “Night Sweats”. It’s great to play this amazing guitar work for you on Something Blue, right here on KASU.
