The New York Times on Cameron Carpenter at LPR

The New York Times came by LPR this past Monday to review the performance of organist Cameron Carpenter.

It was clear in Mr. Carpenter’s opening selection, a rhythmically supple account of Coltrane’s “Moment’s Notice,” that he had a feeling for this music. That should not be surprising: organists, unlike most classical instrumentalists, are schooled in improvisation, and Mr. Carpenter has an extroverted performing style well suited to the business of finding the possibilities in a chord progression or a melody.

Read the rest here.

Please, please, PLEASE have Cameron Carpenter back at Le Poisson Rouge. It was probably the most phenomenal musical experience I've had in three years of regular attendance. I would bring a lot of people next time.
