Saxophonist James Carter returns to his hometown of Detroit to play this special performance with his quintet, featuring Dwight Adams (trumpet), Ralphe Armstrong (bass), Gerard Gibbs (piano), and Leonard King (drums). Since his move to New York city in 1990, his career has taken off with recordings and performances with jazz legends Buddy Tate, Harry “Sweets” Edison, Hamiet Bluiette, Betty Carter, Lester Bowie, and the Marsalis Big Band at Lincoln Center. In 2002 he gave the premiere performance of the Concerto for Saxophones by Roberto Sierra, with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. His 2005 release Gold Sounds offered top-flight jazz interpretations of off-beat rock songs by the band Pavement.
