'Not to be confused with revered American multi-instrumentalist [of the same name], this recording from young Australian saxophonist James Carter suggests a comparative talent.' – Peter Wockner, 2012

'James Carter’s compositions are invigoratingly mature for such a young player – not in a musty way, but in a fully-formed, rounded sense that belies his years. His alto playing throughout has the wry but street-smart rollick of an Art Pepper with a tone that reminds me why I often commit the sacrilege of considering the alto THE jazz saxophone over the tenor… A unique and quite brilliant voice.' - John Hardaker, 2012
James' latest release Darkest Light featuring Stephen Magnusson and Dave Beck has now been released through Newmarket Music and is available through iTunes, Amazon, Bandcamp, and all good digital platforms. You can also purchase the album on the Listen/Buy page of this website.
