One of jazz’s most acclaimed, distinctive improvisers, virtuoso saxophonist James Carter returns to a favored format and simpatico colleagues with new music from At the Crossroads, his 15th CD as a leader and the third showcasing his long-standing Organ Trio.
Enjoying consistently inspired interplay with fellow Motor City stars organist Gerard Gibbs and drummer Leonard King Jr., Carter gets down in his inimitable way with a repertoire that boasts rollicking swingers, moving ballads, gospel standards, and, of course, plenty of blues-drenched items. This is truly a powerhouse trio that places Carter right where he wants to be—grooving in the pocket with Gibbs and King.
