CD Reviews

One of the top jazz ouvres of the eighties
(5 out of 5 stars)

"On the basis of his 5 suite work describing the life of the afroamericans, john carter deserves a place on the jazz pantheon. Not only his work surpasses that of W. Marsalis treating the same argument, but reaches a truly artistic musical form for this specific combo. Besides, his instrumental work at the clarinet knows few peers and finds here a place to flower with no nonsense beauty. Highly recomended for non-discriminating ears."

"I worked with John on four of the five volumes of this set (this being the first) and all I can say is that working on those recordings we knew we were in the presence of a musical genius with a deep musical vision."
