Daniel Carter, William Parker & Matthew Shipp - Seraphic Light(Live at Tufts University)
2018 live release.
Seraphic Light is an exemplary long-form work of collective creative improvisation, performed by three masters of this high art. These three masters each possess a complete and total devotion to the music. On this very rare trio meeting they manifest a meditative resonance, replete with lyrical exploration, throughout a sublime set.
While William Parker and Matthew Shipp are each deservedly world-renowned as players-improvisers-composers due to their extensive recording and performance work as leaders, Daniel Carter remains an underground figure on the world stage; even relatively so within New York City where he has been ceaselessly active since the mid-'70s. He is a masterful player of deep lyricism and passion; in possession of gorgeous tone across a full range of wind instruments. Seraphic Light showcases Carter on all of these instruments and in a characteristic style in which his melodies prod and ply, concurrently asserting and suggesting.
As he has recently entered his seventh decade of non-stop creation, it is hoped that this recording -in the company of well-esteemed peers- will go some measure to increase recognition of the gifts he has long offered. Recorded live in the performance hall of Tufts University (Boston) in April 2017.
