Biography

James Carter – bio
Caribbean Rhapsody (Emarcy Records, May 17, 2011)

Sometimes it takes an extraordinary talent to inspire an unprecedented piece of music. For Puerto Rican–born composer Roberto Sierra, the epiphany struck in the midst of a tenor saxophone solo by James Carter, who was appearing as the featured soloist with legendary soprano Kathleen Battle.

Product Description

CD Description

The latest James Carter record billed as the ‘James Carter Organ Trio’ called ‘At The Crossroads’, featuring one of jazz’s most sophisticated improvisers, James Carter. Also featuring the keyboard work of Detroit’s rising B3 star Gerard Gibbs and the propulsive drum support of veteran Motor City trap master Leonard King Jr., ‘At the Crossroads’ marks the 10th anniversary of the multigenerational James Carter Organ Trio. A sensational follow up to the saxophonist’s acclaimed Emarcy release ‘Caribbean Rhapsody’, Carter’s 15th album documents his trio’s combustible chemistry, with a Detroit-centric cast of special guests adding fuel to the celebratory fire.

4.0 out of 5 stars Has JC reached a crossroads in his career. 3 Jan 2012
By J. D. Naylor TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Long regarded as one of the foremost saxophonists of his generation Carter has yet again delivered the goods with another cracking album.Though the CD cover says "Organ trio" most tracks see the lineup expanded to quartet and qunintet with vocalist Miche Braden joining the party for four tracks. For this album Carter leaves the bass clarinet and flute at home and sticks to soprano,alto,tenor and baritone saxophones (which is enough).
There is a lot of enjoyable music on this album (over 75 mins of it) with Carter delivering hard hitting and,at times,rather extravagant solos.A Carter solo wouldn't be a Carter solo without some customary upper register shrieks and squawks and some low end blasts from from his Baritone.
There is a mixed bag of influeneces here from 60's r&b,swinging jazz,blues,soul and gospel.
Low points ? The gospel infused balladry at the end is a biiiiig mistake and sounds just awful ! Lastly, one or two slower tracks could have been replaced by some up-tempo swingers.
All in all another excellent effort from one of the most talented sax men on the planet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Detroit Jazz Scene Album. 24 July 2012
Format:Audio CD
This CD includes an outstanding and memorable version of Julius Hemphill's classic, The Hard Blues. It's worth buying for this track alone. Carter plays an immaculate saxophone and the understated organ underscore also works perfectly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome 8 Oct 2011
By michaelmaine - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Yet again something new and different for Mr Carter. Excellent from beginning to end. Two great discs in one year and both so different. At the end of the day this is the Young Lion from the mid 90s who's work I still look forward to the most.

If you dig you some solid jazz and outside the edges blues, check this one out. James Carter is an amazing saxophone player and this clearly demonstrates his brilliance. I love this session!
