Airs Monday, August 11 at 8 p.m. James Carter resists category. He plays the tenor, baritone and soprano saxes, plus the flute and bass clarinet. He clearly aligns himself with classic jazz, though his output is so varied that you couldn't possibly call him conservative. Perhaps it's best to say that he's a fiery, obvious talent whose musical imagination spans all of jazz history at once.
