Larry Carlton Net Worth $2 Million Dollars

Larry Carlton was born March 2, 1948 in Torrance, California. He began learning to play guitar when he was six years of age, studying under Slim Edwards near his Torrance house. He also mentions saxophonist John Coltrane as creating a remarkable impression on him. Before he transitioned entirely into a solo career, Carlton became among the most in demand studio musicians of the last three decades. Carlton’s catalogue of work contains film soundtracks, television themes and work on more than 100 gold albums. The bullet shattered his vocal cord and caused major nerve injury. Carlton managed to recover fast and finished On Solid Ground by the conclusion of the entire year. He continued his work using the electric guitar in 1991 when he began to record a blues album, but determined to delay the job to satisfy demand to get a more commercially-oriented jazz offering, which resulted in Kid Gloves. Renegade Gentleman premiered in 1993, featuring Nashville, Tennessee harmonica musician Terry McMillan on several tracks. From 1994 to 1997 Carlton participated in several tours (most notably with Toto guitarist Steve Lukather) and released an album (Larry & Lee). In 1997, Carlton took Lee Ritenour’s position in Fourplay. Carlton went to release solo albums as well as joined Steely Dan as a guest guitarist for six dates on tour in 2009. Carlton wed contemporary Christian music artist Michele Pillar in 1987. He could be the daddy of Katy Carlton and bass player Travis Carlton.
