Multi-instrumentalist James Carter performs with Symphony Tacoma this Saturday evening, April 20, at the Pantages Theater in Tacoma. “Saxophone Fusion” presents compositions derived from diverse cultures that feature the luscious sounds of the saxophone with the rich harmonies of the orchestra.

Carter, known for his skillful approach and surprising musical choices, will perform “Caribbean Rhapsody,” his collaborative work with composer Roberto Sierra, as well as “La Creation Du Monde,” the 1922 composition from Darius Milhaund.

Join KNKX tonight at 8 p.m. when we lead off Evening Jazz with some recent conversation between Carter and KNKX director of music programming Carol Handley about Carter’s performance with Symphony Tacoma, his beginnings as a saxophonist and some fun history playing in the Northwest.
