I had never heard of James Carter until recently but everything I've read about him while doing a little research has given him nothing but praise. I also read something on his website about doing a Saxophone Concierto by composer Robert Sierra and now I have to find this just so I can listen to it. You must read what Robert Sierra said about it here and you'll want to hear it too.
There is a clip below on one of his performances. There is also a clip I posted in my post on Joshua Redman where the two men play together.
