Gary Clark Jr.: Live

This disc marks the official arrival of a major talent: clearly steeped in the blues tradition who can shift seamlessly between feedback-frenzied rawness and cool, old school soul and funk.

Gary Clark Jr.: Blak & Blu

Gary Clark Jr.'s major label debut is an uneven attempt at making a legend out of an artist that may just have the talent to one day earn that title. As for the present, there's still work to do.

Gary Clark Jr.: Seeing Is Believing

If you have a chance to check Clark out live, do so. He sounds fine in a studio setting, and I encourage you to grab his new disc. But like most of the better acts, especially of the jazz and blues idioms, he needs to be seen to be appreciated, and believed.
