While bebop is at the core of Carter's sound, he is no staid classicist, turning his saxophone to high velocity blow-outs and lyrical balladry with equal aplomb.
The swaggering, swashbuckling saxophone of James Carter is one of the wonders of the modern jazz world. Extraordinary technique combined with ferocious energy and passion, built on roots in Detroit soul. The sweep of his imagination embraces the whole saxophone tradition in jazz and he’s constantly bringing it fresh up to date. Here is the 'modern sax god.' (Hi-Fi Magazine), with his classic Organ Trio. Deep grooves and very hot saxophone. With Gerard Gibbs (hammond organ), Leonard King (drums).
