Deep Into It
With both the confidence and taste of a seasoned veteran and the boundless energy and adventure of a colt just set free to run unrestrained, on "Deep Into It", Larry Carlton continues to set standards to which others can only aspire. As always, on the eleven cuts of "Deep Into It" - six of which were written or cowritten by Larry - his touch is alternately mystical, magical and majestic, alternately cool, hot and always inimitable. Typical of Larry's lifelong penchant to go wherever his instincts and inspiration lead him, "Deep Into It" is underpinned with an irresistible R&B flavor which Larry attributes significantly to the talents of his co-producer, Paul Brown, who also shares writer's credits on three of the album's songs. Among other personal standouts for Larry on "Deep Into It" is his own "Closer To Home," a sultry, silky jazz/pop ballad. "I was just so pleased with that song," says Larry, "because it has the sound of a very simple, familiar tune, but harmonically it's very sophisticated."
