Everyone is grateful to have Larry Carlton among us, a gifted and imaginative guitarist who survived a gunman's bullet in 1988. Sometimes, though, we wish the old Larry Carlton were still with us, the spark-spraying fusionist whose nimble flights of fancy electrified recordings by the Crusaders and Steely Dan ("Kid Charlemagne" from Royal Scam) as well his own solo works throughout the 1970s and into the mid-1980s. The appeal of the smooth-jazz gravy train has defused much of Carlton's incendiary inventiveness, a conviction reinforced by the unruffled textures etched into Fingerprints, Carlton's 20th career recording. Those textures, though, are faithful to the album's apparent intent--to create a velvety-smooth soundtrack for late-night romance. No jarring oddities here, just sweetness and seduction throughout. Guests include smooth-jazz vets Abraham Laboriel, Kirk Whalum on sax, Jerry Hay on horns, Michael McDonald for a lone vocal track ("'Til I Hurt You"), and Vince Gill, who duets transparently on "Gracias." The pick of the litter: the closing track, "Crying Hands," an expressive bit of slow-dance finesse that merits repeated listenings. --Terry Wood

I have never been this compelled to write a review for a CD before. Fingerprint's is by far the best jazz album I've heard by a solo artist. This CD is hot from start to finish- there are absolutely no "filler" songs. Plus, it sets the mood for positive contemplation- you'll love it for that alone.
Play this CD and imagine yourself with a drink in hand looking out over a coastal sunset with the person of your dreams.
O.k.- I might sound a little corny, but that's where the comparison ends. Fingertips is a must have!
Thanks Larry

I've been moved to write a review of this cd after reading some of the negative comments by other so-called Carlton fans.In my opinion this truly is a 5 star cd by one of the best jazz guitarists in the world.
Yes,it is smooth jazz and he is catering for that audience but so what? The playing on this cd is relaxed and inspired.There isn't a wrong note or bad phrase on the entire cd.Lazy Susan is my particular favourite track because of the tasty and extremely lyrical solo in the middle of it.
When I first heard this cd I was slightly disappointed with a couple of the other tracks,like All thru the night and Slave song,finding them too smooth and bland,but repeated listenings have changed that!!Each time I listen to this cd I hear something new,which makes me want listen even more!!!
I have several of Larry's cd's and I intend to buy his entire catalogue.
Larry is a consumate artist who can effortlessly play in a varied mix of styles and genres from jazz to blues and country to rock.To all of the negative reviewers I say if you don't like Larry's present style, then don't listen!! There are plenty more of us true fans who will.Just keep playing the old albums and stop whinning!!!

We all know Larry Carlton can play anything in any style. That's what studio guitarists do and Larry is one of the best ever. That said, as smooth jazz goes, I don't forsee how anybody could create a better album. The title track alone is worth the purchase price; the song, especially the guitar playing, is just so darn MUSICAL!. My album doesn't have Marium's whatever on the third track, rather it has The Storyteller, which is also excellent. No this is not Kid Charlemagne, but it is smooth jazz guitar like nobody else can play it. And in that respect, Larry has outdone himself again.

I bought Larry's "Last Night" album back in the eighties and loved it. But, then I made the mistake of forgetting Larry for most of the nineties...until "Fingerprints". (What can I say?...I was young.) This is one of the finest albums by one of the finest jazz guitarists around. Over and over and over again is what it does in my CD player. Also...kudos to Vince Gill on track #9. Let's all hope together that Vince crosses over to instrumental music completely someday. The guitar is where your true voice is Vince. I'm sure Larry will agree...

I was playing this over the bank holiday weekend and found myself really enjoying it. I picked it up in a second-hand music store while visiting a friend in Chicago back in 2000 and to be honest, though I knew of Carlton and his skills as a jazz guitarist and had quite a number of his CDs as a solo artiste, as a member of The Crusaders and as a member of Fourplay, I was actually drawn to pick it up (without even giving it a listen) by the beautifully psychedelic artistry on the front cover.

In the beginning, only two tracks interested me: the southern-flavoured "Lazy Susan" and the brilliant and appropriately titled closing ballad "Crying Hands" (with sensitive keyboard contributions by Matt Rollings and Rick Jackson). I could play these two repeatedly all day and all night. But as time went on and the more I listened, the more I began to like other tracks. Songs like "'Til I Hurt You", which features the vocals of Michael MacDonald (who is always good for the ears as far as I'm concerned); "Gracias", an acoustic guitar duet with Vince Gill; the funky bass line-driven "Silky Smooth", featuring saxophone by Steve Cole; "The Storyteller" (another acoustic guitar track); and the snazzy, swirly, slow-jam number, "Chicks With Kickstands", which features an interesting saxophone performance from smooth jazz maestro, Kirk Whalum. Some of the tracks on the album (6/10) are produced by Carlton himself, with a few (4/10) produced by Paul Brown and though I tend to avoid stuff he's involved with like the plague, he doesn't do too badly here.

Jazz sophisticates like my good friend André probably wouldn't touch this with a bargepole (Ha! I'm ahead of you this time, buddy!) and while one or two of the songs are entirely skippable, it's actually very good in places.

I love this album. It's not usually the type of jazz that I listen to, but from now on, I shall listen to smooth jazz more often. I had never heard of Larry Carlton, until I heard the song "Fingerprints" on the radio and loved it. I bought this album, and I have to say, I love every track. Although on my album I don't have the 3rd track listed here "Marium's theme". Instead I have "The Storyteller" which I think is one of the best on the album. I don't know why there should be 2 different versions of the same album. It was also nice to see that Vince Gill, one of my favourite country artists, does a guitar duet with Larry on "Gracias", track 9. It's good when artists can stretch their boundaries, and show versatility. Larry also wrote most of the songs on this album, and is a brilliant jazz guitarist. Recommended!
