Larry Mitchell soaked up a lot of high-quality creative energy growing up around his dad’s Royal Studios in Memphis, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Al Green and Chuck Berry before picking up a guitar in 1969. Today, he’s a much sought-after producer in his own right at Royal (he’s worked with Green, Anthony Hamilton, Solomon Burke and John Mayer among others), a 15-time New Mexico Music Award holder, and an axe-slinging band leader whose instrumental trio wails on a searing blend of blues rock, jazz and funk. This is the first of a Thursday-Friday night stand.
