Bradford, Bobby / John Carter Quintet
No U Turn, Live in Pasadena 1975

Bradford, Bobby / John Carter Quintet: No U Turn, Live in Pasadena 1975 (Dark Tree Records)

Label: Dark Tree Records    
Released in: France    

"NO U-TURN is the first and only recording by this quintet and the earliest extant recording of Bobby and John live in performance. Also, this shows that window of about 5 years when John was using soprano and clarinet equally. And most importantly, for historians this recording fills a void in Bobby Bradford and John Carter's discography. If you were not in Los Angeles throughout the 70s, this is the first time you'll hear what they were doing during those years! This release includes a 16 pages booklet with great liner notes by Mark Weber as well as many rare and previously unpublished photos by Jak Kilby, Gerard Rouy and Mark Weber."-Darktree
