James Carter Quartet - Prone To Flights Of Whimsy

James Carter Quartet - Prone To Flights Of Whimsy
With Christian Meyer (Adam Katz, Phoebe Lindner Group) on guitar, Daniel Sheehan (Infinite Ape, Paul Williamson) on piano, Ben Christensen (Chelsea Wilson, Frankie Wants Out, Phoebe Lindner Group) on double bass and James Carter on alto saxophone, the James ‘Larry’ Carter Quartet is a talented bunch in their own right.

The quartet was formed after an eighteen month-long residency that saw them develop a distinct and individual musical identity. Trained in the tradition of jazz and improvised music, these four musicians share a desire to create a simpler sound.

James graduated from Monash University in 2009 with a Bachelor of Music with Honours. His studies saw him fortunate enough to study under prominent Australian jazz figures Julien Wilson, Jamie Oehlers, Rob Burke, Ian Whitehurst and Tim Wilson, as well as Mirko Guerrini (Italy), Jean-Michel Pilc (France/USA) and George Garzone (USA).

James has performed at major festivals across the country including the Wangaratta Jazz Festival and the Melbourne International Jazz Festival, and in many of Melbourne’s celebrated jazz venues, including Bennetts Lane, Uptown Jazz Café, Paris Cat, Café 303 and Dizzy’s, as well as performing live for PBS and 3MBS radio.

About this track...

Influenced by the melodic grace of European improvised music, this piece employs purposeful melodic contour over a whimsical harmonic structure. The quartet often play 4 independent lines, but manage to meld them together to create a deceptively simple sound.
