81563, I don’t really know what the best college BB is, but If I was 18 and looking for a jazz school my butt would be on its way to North Texas !
nsp I think you will be satisfied with any James Carter album. I have all of them. Only thing is he has not put out a recording as a leader since 2011. I sat and conversed with him at the bar in Birdland after his first set but I did not want to put him on the spot and ask him why he has not been in the studio.
He does appear as a sideman on 30 or so other albums including one by Wynton Marsalis but I think he has not been in the studio to do anything for quite a few years now. He does continue to tour and do jazz workshops globally.
I was thinking of buying this suite written by Marsalis that features Carter.
