Detroit born, James Carter has been playing and recording saxophones, flutes and clarinets since the late 80's early 90's. He is known for his seemingly unlimited inventiveness as a saxophonist. Carter has mastered various styles of jazz and his playing can be very technical and show his sense of humor.
