Krentz Ratings:
J.C. On the Set (1993), 6/10
Layin' In the Cut (2000), 5.5/10

Detroit-born tenor saxophonist James Carter (1969), who relocated to New York in 1988 and already a teenage sensation, established himself as one of the faceless stylists of his generations with J.C. on the Set (april 1993), playing tenor, alto and baritone in a quartet with piano, bass and drums (notably on the 14-minute Blues For A Nomadic Princess).

After a series of successful but rather tedious collections of standards, Carter flirted with funk and rock on Layin' in the Cut (june 2000), accompanied by rock guitarist Marc Ribot, bassist Jamaaladeen Tacuma and drummer Calvin Weston.
