"The Way is a long story. Based on an old Chinese text, attributed to Lao-Tzu, it reached me 2000 years later, in New York, in Witter Bynner's sing-song version: The Tao Teh Ching (published by Capricorn Books). That was 1959. By '67 I had already set the melody of "The Way" for Irène and was mulling over the other verses. The rest of the pieces were written in the late sixties. By the early seventies began the elaboration and realization of this music, known as Tao, which is still going on. By now, after hundreds of performances of this cycle (in solo, duo, quintet, orchestra, with dancers, electronics, etc.), the shape and sound is coming clear and the whole work seems destined to become "standard" one day. New wings for old words - so be it."-Steve Lacy

Artist Biographies:

"Kent Carter (born June 14, 1939 in Hanover, New Hampshire, USA. Carter studied several instruments before settling on bass. In the late 50s-early 60s, he studied at Berklee College Of Music, played with Lowell Davidson, and in New York with Jazz Composers Orchestra. From the mid-60s he was in Europe with artists including as Barry Altschul, Derek Bailey, Han Bennink, Carla Bley, Paul Bley, Bobby Bradford, Don Cherry, Steve Lacy, Michael Mantler, Enrico Rava, Max Roach, Roswell Rudd and Mal Waldron. During the 70s he continued his association with Lacy, was with John Stevens' Spontaneous Music Ensemble, TOK, a trio with Takashi Kako and Oliver Johnson, and formed his own trio with Carlos Zingaro and François Dreno.

By the 80s, Carter had relocated to France, teaching at the Beaux Art School, Angouleme, and with his wife forming MAD, a music, arts and dance studio. He worked in Detail, with Frode Gjerstad and Stevens, Project, with Karl Berger, Claude Bernard, Klaus Kugel, Charlie Mariano and Albrecht Maurer, and Voyage, with Beñat Achiary and David Holmes. Carter has also played with Billy Bang, Petras Vysniauskas, Theo Jorgensmann, Andreas Willers and Eckard Koltermann. Carter composes for theatre and film, and performs internationally."
