There were passages in the program, especially during pieces such as Joe Hendersonâs âRecorda Me,â in which Carter played with a surprisingly soft and tender sound, his improvisations filled with subtle melodic paraphrases. At other times, he added an appealing, burry edge to his toneâthe result calling up images, on soprano saxophone, of Sidney Bechet.
