The only thing growing faster than Gary Clark Jr.'s acclaim - among fans, critics and iconic musicians alike - is the scope of his talents and tastes. But nothing you have seen, heard or read can prepare you for the power and scope of his debut album, 'Blak And Blu.' Not his collaborations, in the studio and on stage, with Nas, Alicia Keys, the Roots and Eric Clapton nor the ear-bending, cross-format embrace of his tour-de-force debut 'Bright Lights' EP can prepare you. Even his one-to-watch appearance at the White House command performance for the Obamas alongside Mick Jagger, B.B. King, Jeff Beck and Buddy Guy - prompting the Music Fan-in-Chief to remark, "He"s the future."

The album puts his talents and ambitions through a brilliant prism of vast possibilities. 'Blak And Blu' is a rocket ride rushing from the Mississippi Delta of a century ago to a point somewhere ahead of the horizon, gathering up the whole of blues, rock and soul along the way. Perhaps the most succinct summation of Clark's musical vision and what lies ahead can be taken from a recent interview where he imparts: "Music is movement. It all moves together, like lifetimes a continuum. It's all part of the same fabric in the end."
