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.” —All About Jazz


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.
