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 Lastly, one or two slower tracks could have been replaced by some up-tempo swingers.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.

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.
