John Carter has only very few and difficult to find releases. This is a real treasue!! Thanks a lot riccardo!! If there is interest, I could share a show of the Horace Tapscott Sextet in Freiburg, Germany, on 7 August 1987, featuring John Carter.

What treasure! Marvelous group, and Bob Stewart is always a treat.

Sweet! Five Masters at the top of their game. The Moers concert is one of my favorite Carter recordings - this is a most welcome addition. Just love the suppleness of that Carter/Bradford/Newton front-line.

Bradford's still playing in LA & really hasn't ever received 'his due' recognition . . .

thanks for this, which i came across rather late - excellent concert. i can't help with the identity of the penultimate piece, but the last number is "encounter", a particular favourite of mine... i've written about this version here: http://tinyurl.com/38n8czy
