Mat Lavelle on Daniel Carter

Trumpeter and bass clarinetist Matt Lavelle has written a thoughtful appreciation of multi-instrumentalist Daniel Carter on the Brilliant Corners jazz blog:
(excerpt) "Daniel has almost Zero JUDGEMENT on all musicians and people and really believes that EVERYONE has something to say. DC searches for the gold in all music and all people wherever he goes, and finds some where most people would never think to look. He has always been this way as far as I can tell, which has garnered him an army of collaborators, and in fact a considerable amount of fans and more than anything... friends. I call all of the people around him in his musical world, "the DC train", which almost never stops."
