Tom Carter: June 28, 2015 Trans-Pecos – FLAC/MP3/Stream

July 13, 2015

Tom Carter

The last time we caught up with Tom Carter, he was playing as a duo with Barry Weisblat at the small South Slope bar, Freddy’s. That was a particularly out set that I’m still trying to wrap my head around, so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when Carter took the stage a couple weeks ago at Trans-Pecos, heading a bill that featured guitar savant Bill Orcutt (his set here) and the percussion/guitar duo 75 Dollar Bill. Carter’s improvised set is a spacey, thirty-eight minute guitar journey of three to four distinct but linked movements punctuated by quiet, meditative transitions. Carter is a master of this craft and I highly recommend turning up the volume and letting yourself go with this one.

I recorded this set with the AKGs at the stage lip and a soundboard feed from Trans-Pecos FOH Max. The sound and performance are entirely in the zone. Enjoy!

Catch Tom Carter tomorrow night in a duo with Pat Murano at Trans-Pecos! Facebook event here.

I would also be remiss not to mention some new music from Tom Carter coming soon via Three Lobed: the solo double-LP, Long Time Underground. Preorder details should be available soon.
