Blue Note 80 logo web optimised 740

It is looking like saxophonist James Carter’s debut as a bandleader for Blue Note will be released at the end of August. A number of incomplete reports on the Internet suggest that it is titled Live from Newport Jazz and there is a suggestion that we should expect gypsy jazz and the African American heritage of the organ under the microscope plus six compositions by or in the repertoire of Django Reinhardt. Hammond B-3 virtuoso Gerard Gibbs and drummer Alexander White are in the trio with JC. No artwork or tracks seem to be available at the time of writing.
