Voices of Culture | The James Carter Quartet

Saturday, January 27, 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Step into the Sanctuary for a jazz concert from the James Carter Quartet featuring James Carter (saxophones), Gerard Gibbs (piano), Lonnie Plaxico (bass), and Kahlil Kwame Bell (drums).

James Carter’s lifetime of inventive work, reflective of the way he’s mastered a multitude of styles and cultivated an uncanny knowledge of jazz history, has consistently pushed the boundaries of what the saxophone can do.

A dynamic saxophonist, Carter’s music beautifully blends high-velocity solos and soft, warm melodies, weaving together divergent impulses. His impressive recording catalogue includes such albums as Chasing the Gypsy, an engaging lyrical session inspired by the unforgettable collaboration between Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli; Layin’ the Cut, a collection of songs melding funk and electronic sounds, inspired by the iconic guitarist, Jimi Hendrix; Gardenias for Lady Day that pays a heartfelt tribute to Billie Holiday; and recently, James Carter’s Elektrik Outlet, where he explores a new groove, shifting his sax into a keen array of electronics and pedals.

Our Members are invited to join us beforehand, from 6 to 7:30 pm, for a reception.
