O’s Notes: This live session was recording in Tokyo during September 2006. It was an electrifying performance that feels good each time we listen to it. Legendary jazz-fusion guitarist Carlton invited rock fusion guitarist Robben Ford to join him and they play like they are joined at the hip. There is a level of respect that allows each of them to push to the limits without competing. The listener is the benefactor! Ford also adds vocals on “Derrick’s Blues” to change the pace a bit. Otherwise this is pure fusion including Carlton classics “Burnable” and “Too Bad”. There is also a DVD that adds yet another dimension. The lighting and focus aren’t perfect but you can see the interplay and the sound is there!
