Le Pot Pourri Questionnaire: Tom Carter
Charalambides' Tom Carter needs no introduction at this point. After piles and piles of recordings (solo, in duos, trios, quartets, etc etc), he has firmly established himself as one of improvised music's mainstays. He took some time out of his busy schedule to answer a few quick questions from the mighty Bruno Parisse - the first installment in his ongoing interview series.
