James Carter: saxophones (altered via effect pedals)

James Carter is back in town. One of the most admired saxophonists of his generation and a powerful force in today’s jazz scene, James Carter’s playing is firmly rooted in 20th-century Afro-American culture.
The sweep of his imagination and the power of his technique embraces the whole saxophone tradition in jazz which he has extended into the 21st century through his resolutely contemporary outlook, prompting Hi-Fi UK magazine to dub him a “Modern sax God.”.
James Carter found a new groove to explore with this band. Shifting his sax into a keen array of electronics and pedals just might be the perfect "outlet" for Carter to tap into that "frustrated guitarist" that he often describes himself to be. An excellent selection of tunes from Eddie Harris, Gene Ammons, Stevie Wonder, Minnie Ripperton sizzle, slide, and pop. (Pressetext)
