Jazz Conversation: James Carter with Chris Brown
March 1, 2014 3:00 PM
The prolific multi-reedist and saxophonist James Carter has recorded 18 albums under his own name. Joined by keyboardist Gerard Gibbs and drummer Leonard King Jr., this performance will mark Carter’s return to Portland since his last performance at the 2004 Mt. Hood Festival. Carter’s connection to the organ concept dates back to 1988 when he was a special guest with Lester Bowie which then led to an invitation play with the trumpeter as part of a new quintet (forerunner to Bowie’s New York Organ Ensemble), an inspirational turning point in Carter’s career.
