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.”
James Carter has cemented his reputation as one of the most adventurous, visionary young reed players on the cusp of this new millennium.... Not as an outsider, but as one of the most exciting young virtuosos in contemporary music....
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.
