Clarinettist/composer John Carter created a profound body of contemporary music expressing the African-American experience through its folk idioms. Long inspired by Carter's vision, clarinettist Houle has assembled a superb group of Vancouver and New York players to, in critic Art Lange's words, “resurrect the spirit of the original, freeing his own ensemble's unique capabilities... In improvisational music, form is feeling... ” And the feelings here are tender, buoyant, and generous. First recording of Carter's “Three Dances in the Vernacular”. Featuring Dave Douglas (trumpet), Peggy Lee (cello), Mark Dresser (bass), and Dylan van der Schyff (drums).

Reviews
One of the finest albums ever to come out of the Vancouver jazz scene...and a shoo-in for my 1998 top 10 list... Luminous contributions from Douglas, Lee, van der Schyff, and Dresser. ” Alexander Varty, Georgia Straight
