Gary Clark Jr. took a break from his band for a few intimate solo gigs this month. These gigs were an opportunity for the bluesman to pay tribute to some of his heroes and show off his ability to captivate crowds with nothing more than a guitar and his voice.
Gary can now count Carnegie Hall among the venues he has played. The storied hall is usually home to classical concerts, but occasionally a rock or bluesman will play in this sacred NYC venue.
Listening to a concert in person at Carnegie, you’ll notice how amazing the sound is. Unfortunately this recording is a bit soft, most likely because Carnegie Hall has a strict and enforced policy about taping shows. The recording doesn’t quiet capture the experience, but is excellent given the circumstances. Make sure to turn your volume WAY up and enjoy! Thanks to petercul for the recording.
