Jazz Note # 2: At Alvins, The Carter Brothers

On Feb 2nd, I went to Alvin's to hear the musical reunion of the Carter Brothers. Robert, Kevin and James Carter with Michael Cassem, Michael Evans and George 'Bubba' scales played a couple of sets that included jazz, funk and r & b. There was also a jam session that included the vocalist Ping and Gwen Laster on violin. In between sets, James sat at my table and I learned that he would be leaving to tour on the 6th. I picked up one of his broken reeds, joked that I would wear it in my hair as a talisman and we had a good laugh. James' tour schedule can be found at
