JON CARROLL & LOVE RETURNS

LIVE RETURNS

Live at the Barns at Wolf Trap

1 Just Relax
2 In Bed
3 Tight Connection To My Heart
4 Can’t Argue with That

Jon released Love Returns last winter and had a rockin’ CD release show at the Barns at Wolf Trap, a live and lively venue in Virginia. The show included great pop/soul singers, a horn section, and performances by original bandmate Bill Danoff and the second generation, Owen Danoff and Ben Carroll. Jon was just 19 when he earned his first GRAMMY, for arranging Afternoon Delight, the biggest hit of the Summer of ’76. That practiced hand is evident in the performances captured here. A hometown crowd always adds to the fun.

Jon Carroll’s First Solo Release in Over a Decade

After a long and artistically rich career as a songwriter, sideman to-the-stars, composer, singer, multi-instrumentalist and performer, Jon blooms here with a collection of songs ranging from the highly rollicking to the poignantly reckoning. Since his early days of national notoriety with the Grammy-Award winning Starland Vocal Band (Afternoon Delight) he has wowed audiences near and far with his exciting and energetic keyboard, guitar and vocal prowess behind a league of renowned artists that includes Mary Chapin Carpenter, Rodney Crowell, Dixie Chicks and many others. His songs have been recorded by Linda Ronstadt, Tom Jones and Kenny Rogers to name a few. He is a sought-after player/producer and this collection of tunes is a popping yet intimate offering of Jon’s many sides that will have your hips shaking, your mind thinking, and, occasionally, your heart aching.
