Free jazz musician Daniel Carter will perform in Pittsburgh this week with his trio The Moon. Carter, who is from Wilkinsburg, plays saxophone, clarinet, trumpet, and flute and has performed with major acts including William Parker, Thurston Moore, Matthew Shipp. Though never receiving too much attention for his work, Carter has been active in the New York scene since the 1970s and has releases on notable labels like Eremite Records, Aum Fidelity, Thirsty Ear, and Silkheart Records.
The Moon — comprised of Carter, electric guitarist Adam Caine, and drummer Federico Ughi — will play two sets tonight (Wed., Oct. 30) at the Thunderbird Cafe in Lawrenceville. For more information and tickets, head over to the Thunderbird website.
