About this Article

Guitarist Gary Clark Jr. had to learn how to trust someone else to record his major label debut. When noted producer Mike Elizondo signed on to help with "Blak and Blu," out last week, Clark was more than a little leery. "I'm very sensitive," Clark said, chuckling. "I like to hold onto what I do ... So I was a bit worried going in, you know? Having not known him, what is this cat gonna do to my songs? They're good as is. But I let it go."
