Audiophile Audition Rates “At The Crossroads” Four Stars
“James Carter is a monster saxophone virtuoso who is willing to get down and dirty with his organ trio. This album displays his breath-taking musical ability and versatility.”
Whether he’s playing tenor or soprano sax, shows off a sweet, sinuous tone; when he reinterprets Reinhardt’s classic Nuages with a bass sax, the muscular sound is distancing at first, but then it wraps itself around the listener like an anaconda.
|This is James Carter in the present tense, at the full height of his jaw-dropping powers, swooping through a new concerto he premiered in October with the Detroit Symphony. |
