The organ combo reigned for several decades as jazz’s meat-and-potatoes mainstay, a populist vehicle for blues-drenched performances. In the hands of James Carter, one of jazz’s most sophisticated saxophone improvisers, the organ trio is no less satisfying, yet his virtuosic chops elevate the organ combo to a rarefied realm defined by delectable soul, a gourmet repertoire, and inspired group interplay. Featuring the lithe and muscular keyboard work of Detroit’s rising B3 star Gerard Gibbs, and the propulsive drum support of Motor City drum master Alex White, the multigenerational James Carter Organ Trio is now approaching its twentieth anniversary.
