Reviews of Steve's first solo CD, Act One:

A sublime solo guitar disc that highlights Carter's warm sound and thoughtful solo work on an extended collection of standards. Carter, who's been heard at local venues such as the Crescent City Bistro in Dover, is a fluid player with a keen sense of melodic development that doesn't succumb to virtuoso pyrotechnics. Tunes range from Billie Holiday's “God Bless the Child” to Herbie Hancock's “Dolphin Dance” to Jobim's “Once I Loved.” A fine set by an equally fine musician.

- Alan Chase, “Jazz Universe”, The Wire, New Hampshire

His guitar skills are impeccable, and he makes listening to solo guitar enjoyable...this guy's solo guitar is worth a listen

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
