James Carter Quartet “Lookin’ at the Lock” Music of Eddie ‘Lockjaw’ Davis

March 1 @ 9:30 pm - 11:00 pm

Don’t miss the James Carter Quartet here at Birdland for a whole week with 10 sets!

Detroit native James Carter is widely recognized for his virtuosity on saxophone and woodwinds. Carter has embraced all elements of jazz history, from dixieland to fusion to free jazz — and was one of the few prominent artists of his generation to do so — recording and performing with a wide variety of artists from The World Saxophone Quartet to Wynton Marsalis, Dee Dee Bridgewater, The Mingus Big Band, and many more. Carter’s new project, debuting at Birdland, is a tribute to one of his heroes, the bluesy soulful jazz tenor saxophonist Eddie ‘Lockjaw’ Davis.
