Larry Carlton – The Jazz King: The Musical Compositions Of H.M. King Bhumibol Adulyadej

His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej is world renowned and has a distinction of being the youngest and first Asian to be named an Honorary Member of The Vienna Academy for Music And Performing Arts. The King was lauded for the quality of his musical compositions and especially for having helped build a bridge of music tradition between east and west. I was honored to create East and West as well as to create my interpretation of this most influential music.

His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the most wonderful King, has shown to the world that leadership is based on example. Most men follow the path of others, but the King took his machete and cut a path for others to follow him I am most honored and grateful to have been granted such an opportunity to be a small part of this historic event. Thanks to all of the STAR musicians and engineers that joined me in this endeavor. I so appreciate what each of you gave in spirit and in the music. I am honored to do this Unique, Once in a Lifetime Project. I felt a great responsibility to interpret these wonderful and diverse melodies in my own way. May all who listen Be Pleased. (Larry Carlton)
