ARTSOUNDS FEATURING JAMES CARTER ORGAN TRIO
Saturday, October 22, 2016 @ 8:00 PM
James Carter is a giant in the jazz world, recognized as one of the top saxophonists of his generation. His powerful solos are rooted in tradition but take listeners on excursions that combine many other musical influences —including funk, fusion, rock and soul — that were part of his experience growing up in Detroit. James Carter will perform at The Sheldon with his Organ Trio, featuring Hammond B-3 organist Gerald Gibbs and drummer Leonard King. This unique music and art event inspired by the exhibition Paint for Peace: Outside/In – The Ferguson Murals, artwork created on the sides of storefronts in the days and weeks following the 2014 protests in Ferguson.
“His performance was nothing short of a virtuoso clinic, a toe-tapping, heart-stopping, smile-making romp.” – Detroit News
