The music was great but the venue is set up to get at your wallet. My Goldstar seat was behind a pillar. When I asked to be moved they said they would give me a better seat for ten dollars. I agreed and they moved me. Then the hostess came back, "you're a goldstar customer so it will be $25.". Eventually they agreed to let me sit at the bar for no extra cost.
Quotes & Highlights
- “When James Carter burst onto the scene a dozen years ago, it was akin to the second coming. Not since the 1960s had someone emerged with so potent a combination of astounding advanced and extended techniques, fiery intensity, and unfettered imagination.” --<em>All About Jazz</em>
Detroit-born tenor saxophonist James Carter took New York by storm in 1988 as a teenage sensation. He established himself as one of the leading saxophone stylists of his generation, well versed in everything from gypsy-jazz to funk.
