Lights Out In Wonderland

Grizzles song craft with today, tasteful fretwork

Guitarist Review 2015

If you haven’t heard of him, German-born guitarist and producer Carl Carlton has worked with some greats over the years, from Robert Palmer to Joe Cocker. Here, he’s doing things on his own account, and the substantial, gritty song craft throughout shows Carlton has class. From Springsteen-esque ’Moonlight in New York’ to the grizzled soul of ’Cool My Heat’, it’s enjoyable, tasteful, and mature fare backed by tidy, effective playing that supports each song perfectly [JD]

STANDOUT TRACK: Moonlight in New York
