This is veteran guitarist Larry Carlton's tribute to Philadelphia songwriters Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff. Released in 2011, this CD is certainly a 'laid back' departure for the ever jazz guitar pioneering of Larry Carlton. With a 4 decade career and surviving a near fatal gunshot wound behind him, maybe he is slowing down a bit.

To give you a background of the material on the CD, Gamble & Huff were responsible for countless of Soul/R&B hits for the O'Jays, Jerry Butler, The Stylistics, Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, etc... Like Detroit was to Berry Gordy, Philadelphia was to Gamble & Huff. A sound was created and stuck with the association of it's city origin.

The versions and arrangements are very simple; quite similar to the original versions. This CD is a smooth jazz classic for those who enjoy this 1970's & 1980's style of music. Carlton's clean guitar tone and octave-style playing reminds us of the great Wes Montgomery. The hits "Could It Be I'm Falling In Love", "The Back Stabbers", "If You Don't Know Me By Now" , "I'll Be Around" and "You Make Me Feel Brand New" and all covered here in very fine form. Buy it!!
