Andrew Barker & Daniel Carter - Polyhedron (ASTRAL SPIRITS June 7, 2018)

We are incredibly excited to present the first duo album from Andrew Barker (Barker Trio, Gold Sparkle Trio, Acid Birds, Little Huey Creative Orchestra) and Daniel Carter (too many groups to mention) since 2001's "Common Soldier" (Qbico). "Polyhedron" finds Barker & Carter stretching the classic sax & drums duo into all kinds of wild territories and featuring each of their multi-instrumental talents throughout. Each piece is dedicated to colleagues that they have both worked with in the past & present (Roy Campbell, Sabir Mateen, William Parker & Charles Water). Both Daniel Carter & Andrew Barker have spent countless years honing their craft, together and individually...two true masters getting intensely deep within this tape. Play loud!

1. Polyhedron (for Roy Campbell)
2. Astral Linguist (for Sabir Mateen)
3. Veiled Cadence (for William Parker)
4. Peace Dividend (for Charles Waters)

Andrew Barker - Drums & Percussion 
Daniel Carter - Alto, Tenor & Soprano Saxophones, Clarinet, Trumpet, Flute.
