James Carter Quintet, Wheel Session 79
“Wheel Sessions” is a series of jazz performances for an intimate listening audience, held in Greenville on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month. Wheel Session 79 features James Carter Quintet, February 27th from 7:30 to 9:30 pm at 1801 Rutherford Road. Carter is a powerhouse musician and one of the most admired saxophonists of his generation, garnering plaudits for his role in helping to propel jazz full tilt into the future over the past twenty-five years. His music is fueled by deep respect and intimate knowledge of the jazz tradition, while his approach often embraces jazz’s avant-garde. At 50, Carter remains relentless… A child of Detroit and builder of the modern jazz scene in that city—where he still lives when not holed up in a pad on New York’s Upper West Side.
