The Tony Carter Quartet - Gayton 8 October 2010
An audience of about 100 turned out for the Tony Carter Quartet performing at the Church of St Mary the Virgin at Gayton on 8 October. The venue is a typical village church and the atmosphere was intimate and a perfect setting for an eveningís jazz.
The group performed almost exclusively classic jazz standards, typically from the Duke Ellington - Benny Goodman era and encompassed the repertoires of many other leading musicians of that era.
The group is tightly knit and swings in a way that clearly demonstrate s the playersí understanding and respect for each other. Tony Carterís lyrical skills on saxophones and clarinet, particularly the latter, evidenced his real talent and flair for this genre of jazz. His Quartet is worthy of a wide audience.
Various leading names in jazz have appeared at this venue in recent years, including Art Themen, Greg Abate and Nick Weldon, and the Gayton Jazz Appreciation Society, organised by John Shaw, is to be congratulated on the original idea of engaging highly respected jazz artistes to perform at this venue.
Tony Carterís Quartet has been playing together for sometime now. The most recent member is Mike Kemp, the groupís talented pianist and leader of the rhythm section which drove the group throughout the evening. Tony and Mike started playing together about 18 months ago and found that their styles complemented each other. Tony hails from the New Forest and his bassist, John Seaman and drummer (and vocalist), Dave Brown have been long-time associates.
