KENT CARTER "Beauvais Cathedral" (1974-5) EMANEM 4061

The long-awaited reissue of KENT CARTER's highly-acclaimed first solo album. As well as some solo cello and double bass improvisations, there are some collages in which he plays nearly all the parts himself courtesy of over-dubbing techniques. Carter had previously been heard with the groups of Paul Bley and Steve Lacy (among others), but such work did not prepare one for the unique music heard in this collection. Three previously unissued items (including a one-man string quartet) have been added to this CD. Reissue of Emanem LP 3306 with extra material. 74 minutes.

Price GBP 10.00

KENT CARTER STRING TRIO "The Willisau Suites" (1984/1997) EMANEM 4105

KENT CARTER's String Trio, with CARLOS ZINGARO on violin, FRANÇOIS DRENO on viola and the leader on double bass, somehow managed to sound like a classical chamber trio, a jazz group, and a European folk band simultaneously. Their unique niche features magnificent improvisations framed by Carter's strong compositions. There are also two short duo improvisations, and two short pieces by a later trio with ALBRECHT MAURER on violin and EMMANUELLE ROCH on viola. Edited reissue of ITM 970077 with extra material. 58 minutes.

Special price GBP 7.00

KENT CARTER & ALBRECHT MAURER "The Juillaguet Collection" (1996) EMANEM 4033

Double bass and violin duets, mostly improvised, some based on original compositions. Beautiful string music from two very underrated musicians, recorded by Carter in his studio. 60 minutes.

Special price GBP 7.00

KENT CARTER STRING TRIO "Intersections" (2004/5) EMANEM 4130

KENT CARTER's current String Trio, with ALBRECHT MAURER on violin, KATRIN MICKIEWICZ on viola and the leader on double bass, somehow manages to sound like a classical chamber trio, a jazz group, a European folk band, and a free improvising group simultaneously, whilst sounding totally natural and unlaboured. Their unique niche features magnificent improvisations framed by strong compositions contributed by all three musicians, plus some collective creations. A worthy follow up to THE WILLISAU SUITES from 1984. 69 minutes.

Special price GBP 7.00

RIVIÈRE COMPOSERS’ POOL "Summer Works 2009" EMANEM 5301 3-CD set

KENT CARTER (double bass), THEO JÖRGENSMANN (clarinet), ALBRECHT MAURER (violin, viola), ETIENNE ROLIN (clarinet, basset horn, alto flute)
The meeting of four of the most experienced musicians in Europe, all of whom have worked with each other in various groups, except that this was the first time that Jörgensmann and Rolin had met. The totally improvised music shows their individual strengths as well as their ability to work together. The first CD contains the results of a studio session that was the first time that Carter, Jörgensmann and Maurer had worked as a trio. On the following day, the quartet played a concert, which can be heard on the third CD. They also made some music, preserved on the second CD, just before the concert. The rest of the second CD contains the results of a later studio duo session by Carter and Rolin. It was not originally intended to issue a 3-CD set, but even though some editing took place in all four groups of recordings, there was still far too much superb music to fit onto just 2 CDs - so be prepared for three hours of excellence. 182 minutes.

Price GBP 20.00
