  • Just One of Those Things
  • Parker’s Mood
  • On Green Dolphin Street


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.

Tune in New Years Eve at Midnight after the Fish Fry.
