Yes, I picked this off Dime, too. I was wondering if it was the same guy as in the previous post, so glad to have it confirmed.

thank you - this looks like a great one. can't wait to put this on. I actually like Carter's acoustic bands more than his organ trio stuff so I'm really looking forward to this one (and a great band here too - Carter's band for a number of years). that said, I love the organ stuff too, no doubt. as long as James is out front blowing his aggragate mess of horn, I'm happy. a side note, that may interest no one, but I was lucky enough to see Carter's organ trio with David Murray guesting at Yoshis a few years back. now that was some horn playing. like 3 hours a night (and I went a couple of nights)of 2 monsters trying to rip each others heads off. thanks for the post serviceton.

Greetings -- I'm having trouble with the part 1 link. Could you verify that it works correctly? I saw James Carter at the Village Vanguard around this time -- a great show! Love the "Real Quietstorm" album, I believe some of his best playing!!!
